Eirini Kanellou has graduated from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki with a B.Sc. in Chemistry, and received the M.Sc. Materials Science and Technology from National Technical University of Athens. Her PhD thesis is currently under Assistant Prof. A. Zorpas (O.U.C.) and the co-supervision Prof. Chr. Argirusis (LIMT/NTUA). She has also been an Erasmus visiting researcher at the University of Helsinki (Department of Chemistry) since June 2022. The research is focused on the synthesis of nanoparticles via sonochemistry, along with a comparison with conventional methods by combining various metals/metal oxides and examining the effects of ultrasounds during their preparation. The nanoparticles are tested for their (photo)catalytic activity on different chemical reactions. Her scientific impact counters 2 journal publications, 2 book chapters, 8 participations in international and 2 in national conferences. Her research interests are photocatalysis, sonochemistry, nanomaterials and composites (synthesis, properties and applications).
