Thomas Anthopoulos

Professor, Material Science and Engineering

Physical Science and Engineering Division
Center membership : 
KAUST Solar Center

Education Profile

  • ​​​​​​Marie Curie Postdoctoral Fellow, Philips Research Laboratories, Eindhoven, Netherlands, 2003-2006 
  • Postdoctoral Fellow, University of St. Andrews, 2001-2003 
  • Ph.D., Staffordshire University, 1998-2003 
  • B.Sc. (Hons), Staffordshire University, 1994-1998 

Research Interests

Professor Anthopoulos' research interests are centered on understanding the properties of materials and applying this fundamental understanding to develop improved materials and devices for a wide range of applications in energy harvesting and generation, electronics, displays, lighting and sensors. He is also interested in innovative manufacturing technologies for large-area nano-electronics where the device, and ultimately system level performance, is determined by the device's physical dimensions rather than strictly by the active material(s) employed.
