Dionysios Christodouleas, is an assistant professor of Chemistry at the University of Massachusetts Lowell. He joined the Department of Chemistry at the university in 2016. Before that, he was a postdoctoral research associate in Harvard University working with Prof. George Whitesides.

His research interests focus on low-Cost Diagnostics, sensors, bioanalytical chemistry, electrochemistry and luminescence.

D. Christodouleas holds a Ph.D. in Chemistry (2012), a M.Sc. in Chemical Analysis & Quality Control (2007) and a B.S. in Chemistry (2004), all from the University of Athens, the leading university in Greece. He also holds a M.Sc. degree in Techno-economical Systems (MBA) (2011) from the National Technical University of Athens .

D. Christodouleas has earned several highly prestigious awards and scholarships (e.g., Alexander S. Onassis Scholarship etc.) and he was selected by an international committee to participate in the 63rd Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting (06/30/2013 – 07/05/2013, Lindau, Germany).

Thus far, he has published more than 29 papers and 8 patents. Some of them are the “Luminescent methods in the analysis of untreated edible oils: A review”, the “Polymerization-based signal amplification for paper-based immunoassays”, the “Electrically Activated Paper Actuators and the “Determination of phenolic compounds using spectral and color transitions of rhodium nanoparticles”.
