Julianna Panidi is a David Clarke EPSRC Fellow in the Department of Chemistry and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA). She is a Fellow of the 2024 European Talent Academy and a member of the Departmental EDI Committee. Her research focuses on developing high-performing solution-processed electronics, such as thin film transistors and solar cells from sustainable routes. Primarily, focus is given to the careful consideration of raw materials and solvents to enable environmentally friendly manufacturing processes.

Prior to her current position, Julianna worked as a Research Fellow at the Centre for Electronic Frontiers, University of Southampton, where she conducted research on oxide electronics characterization. Before that, she was a Research Scientist at Chromosol Ltd.

Julianna obtained her PhD in 2020 from Imperial College London, Department of Physics, under the guidance of Prof Thomas Anthopoulos. She was a member of the Plastic Electronics CDT, and she earned her MRes in 2016. Additionally, she holds an MRes in Physics and Nanomaterials (2015) from the University of Pierre and Marie Currie in Paris, France. In 2014, she completed her BSc in Materials Science at the University of Patras in Greece.
