Emmanuel Kymakis is a Full Professor at the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering of the Hellenic Mediterranean University (HMU), Vice-President of the HMU Research Center and Director of the interinstitutional Post-Graduate Program “Nanotechnology for Energy Applications”. He received the B.Eng. (First Class Honours) degree in Electrical Engineering & Electronics from Liverpool University in 1999 and the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from Cambridge University in 2003. He and Prof. Gehan Amaratunga are the inventors of the polymer-nanotube solar cell. Before joining HMU, he was a technical consultant offering engineering and consultancy services in the realization of photovoltaic and solar thermal power plants. His research is focused on the realization of advanced materials and solution processable optoelectronic and energy devices for emerging applications. In recent years, his research focused on graphene and related 2D materials (GRMs) interfacial engineering of perovskite and organic solar cells for improved performance and stability, and on performance evaluation of PV systems in outdoor conditions. He has >100 SCI publications and over 8.000 citations with an h-index of 45. He has been an honorary lecturer at UConn and a recipient of an Isaac Newton and an EPSRC studentship. He was named as a 2014 ChemComm Emerging Investigator and has received two National Excellence Awards. He has served as a member of the founding General Assembly of the Hellenic Foundation for Research & Innovation (HFRI), the Engineering sectoral scientific council of the National Council for Research & Innovation of Greece (NCRI) and the Engineering thematic advisory council of HFRI. He is currently the leader of the Energy Generation WP of the FET-Flagship Initiative Graphene.
