Bio and Interests: 
Dr Androula Nassiopoulou received the B.Sc. degree in Physics from the University of Athens in 1975 and the M.Sc. and Ph.D degrees from the University of Paris XI (ORSAY) in 1977 and 1980 respectively. She then moved to the University of Reims, France as Associate Professor, from where she received the “habilitation to direct research” (Doctorat d’Etat) in 1985. She is with the Institute of Microelectronics (IMEL) at NCSR Demokritos since 1986. In 1996 she has been elected by an international scientific committee as the Director of IMEL and she served the Institute from this position for two consecutive mandates (1996-2009). Dr Nassiopoulou was also member of the board of Management of NCSR Demokritos in 1996-2009 and Vice President of NCSR Demokritos in 2001-2003, member of the Greek National Research Council in 2001-2003, member of the Expert Advisory Group of NMP-FP6 in 2003-2005, member of the Scientific Community Council of the European Nanoelectronics platform (ENIAC) in 2008-2012 and member of the Governing Board of the European Institute of Nanoelectronics (Sinano) in 2009-2012. She was the founder and was/is the President of the Greek National scientific society “Micro & Nano”, devoted to Micro and Nanoelectronics, Nanotechnologies, and MEMS. Dr Nassiopoulou is currently Director of Research at the Institute of Microelectronics of NCSR Demokritos, at the Head of the “Nanostructures for Nanoelectronics and Sensors” research group. Her current research interests are in the field if Si nanostructures: formation, characterization and applications in electronics and sensors. The materials currently investigated include Si nanowires and nanocrystals, porous Si, porous anodic alumina and others. The techniques used include electrochemistry, metal-assisted chemical etching, low pressure chemical vapour deposition (LPCVD), sputtering and electron gun evaporation. The Electronic devices currently investigated include on-chip RF passive devices integrated on a nanostructured porous Si substrate (CPWs, inductors, antennas), and memory devices. Sensors include thermal devices (gas flow sensors for medical and automotive applications, cooling devices, thermoelectric generators). Dr A. G. Nassiopoulou has been involved in a large number of EU research projects, including FP6 IST-NoE, project SINANO, FP6-IST-IP, project Goodfood, FP6 IST-I3, project ANNA, and EU FP7 ENIAC JU, project SE2A. She is currently involved in the EU projects FP7-ICT-NoE Nanofunction, Contr. No 257375 on “Beyond CMOS Nanodevices for Adding Functionalities to CMOS” and FP7 CSA- project NANO-TEC, Contract No 257964 on “Beyond CMOS Nanodevices for Adding Functionalities to CMOS” She coordinated a large number of national projects and grants including project granted for the Institute Excellence in 2001 and 2005. Dr A. G. Nassiopoulou is author or co-author of over 250 publications in international journals, reviews, books, and conference proceedings, has been granted 5 patents, edited 15 Special issues of International Journals or Conference Proceedings volumes and chaired/co-chaired more than 15 International and National Conferences and Symposia, including 5 PSST Conferences held every two years in Spain, 3 Micro&Nano Conferences held every three years in Athens and 3 E-MRS Symposia within the E-MRS Conference held every year in Strasbourg or Nice, France. She supervised 18 PhD students.
