Nefeli Avgerou joins our group

In December, we welcomed our new colleague Nefeli Avgerou, who graduated in Chemistry from the University of Crete and defended her thesis entitled Restoration of cracks in glazed clay ceramic tiles Azulejos using laser technology at the IESL-Forth Institute in Heraklion, Crete. Then, Nefeli defended her master’s thesis Protection, valorization and conservation of monuments and sites at the Architecture Department of the Technical University of Crete. During this time, she also worked in the MachMob laboratory at the same Faculty as a researcher, analyzing historical building materials and proposing and developing new solutions for the renovation of historical buildings. As part of an internship in the R&D Department of Sika Technology AG, she worked on analyzing mine tailings and incorporating them in building materials as a cement and/or aggregates replacement, which was the topic of her master’s thesis: Mine waste as partial substitutes for raw materials in renovation and modern mortars: the transformation of ” waste” into “product”.

Currently, Nefeli is conducting research on glass degradation. We encourage you to follow the results of her research, and we wish Nefeli successful and fruitful experiments!
