Konstantinos is a PhD student within the Department of Bioengineering supervised by Dr Periklis (Laki) Pantazis. During his PhD, he develops an advanced single-objective volumetric bioimaging toolkit that will enable confined single-cell labelling using primed conversion and engineered fluorescent proteins. In parallel, he supports multiple research projects within the Laboratory of Advanced Optical Precision Imaging developing genetically-encoded fluorescence reporters for mechanical stimuli and biodegradable Second Harmonic Generation (SHG) probes for cancer precision imaging. Additionally, he is a PhD representative at the Department of Bioengineering and part of the Equality and Departmental Culture Committee.
Konstantinos studied Molecular Biology and Genetics at the Democritus University of Thrace in Greece and obtained a Master's degree in Translational Research in Biomedicine. Before joining Imperial College, he was a Research Assistant at the Laboratory of Nano Bio Imaging at the Department of Biosystems Science and Engineering (D-BSSE) at ETH Zurich in Basel working on fluorescent protein engineering.
