Dr. Christoforos Panteli is a Visiting Researcher in the Optical and Semiconductor Devices Group in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Imperial College London. He is also a Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions Fellow in the University of Cyprus. The current project he is working on focuses on the hardware development for a wearable smart textile sensor for breath analysis.
He received the M.Eng. degree in electrical and electronic engineering and the Ph.D. degree in nano-fabricated gas sensors for biomedical applications from Imperial College London, London, UK in 2015 and 2019 respectively. During his PhD he pioneered the surface post-processing of electronic pH sensors integrated on Complementary Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor (CMOS) chips using graphene sheets and plasma, for biomedical applications such as DNA sequencing, sweat and saliva measurements. He was also pioneer of the double-surface suspended graphene gas sensor technology for breath analysis measurements which was demonstrated in the laboratory by detecting in real-time acetone and ammonia vapours that are known to be associated with diabetes and kidney failure. Dr Panteli’s PhD and PostDoc gave him expertise in gas sensing, cleanroom laboratories, chemical handling, integrated and PCB electronics design and characterisation, mechanical design, experimental set up design and implementation.
Additionally, to the current collaboration project, Dr Panteli collaborated during his PhD with the Centre of Bio-inspired Technology of Imperial College London. This collaboration continues to this day with fruitful projects on the graphene-coated CMOS ISFET sensors.
He was successful several times in raising funding for conference travel expenses and his PhD was fully funded by doctoral training award from Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) UK while holding the A. G. Leventis foundation scholarship for biomedical research.
