Livia Kalossaka is a researcher at the Leverhulme Centre for Cellular Bionics working between the department of Design Engineering and Chemistry.

Her current research project is focussing on the development of novel bio-receptive materials capable of growing microorganisms directly onto their surface as novel cladding systems. Instead of building against nature, biological materials and processes will be integrated into structurally engineered materials and processes.

Prior to her doctoral studies she has gained industry experience in a leading chemical multinational company with assignments in both Supply Chain and R&D, in the Netherlands and Spain respectively.
