Dr. Konsolakis Michalis (www.tuc.gr/konsolakis.html) is currently Full Professor of “Heterogeneous Catalysis & Surface Science” at the School of Production Engineering & Management of the Technical University of Crete, Greece. He received BSc degree (1997) and Ph D. (2001) from the Chemical Engineering Department, University of Patras, Greece. His research activities are mainly focused in the areas of heterogeneous catalysis and surface science with particular emphasis on structure-property relationships. Recently, he is mainly focused on the rational design and nano-engineering of metal oxide catalysts by means of advanced synthetic and promotional routes. His published work includes ca. 100 articles in international peer-review journals and more than 130 articles in conference proceeding. He is a member of the Editorial Board of several international journals in the fields of Materials & Surface Science, serving also as a regular reviewer in numerous scientific journals and research funding agencies. He has served as a Guest Editor of various special issues in the fields of Heterogeneous Catalysis & Materials Science.”.
