Stamatatos Research Group
Welcome to Stamatatos Research Group
Dr. Stamatatos was born in Patras, Greece, on the 20th of November, 1980. Patras is Greece’s third largest city and the regional capital of Western Greece, in northern Peloponnese, ~220 km west of Athens. He performed both his undergraduate and graduate studies in the Chemistry Department at the University of Patras (Greece), and then he moved to the University of Florida (USA) for two years of postdoctoral research under the mentorship of Drago Professor George Christou. Dr. Stamatatos returned back to Greece in 2008 and he stayed until 2012, working as a Temporary Lecturer of Inorganic Chemistry at the University of Patras. His research group was fully established in July 2012, when Dr. Stamatatos moved to the Brock University of St. Catharines (Ontario, Canada) as an Assistant Professor of Inorganic Chemistry. St. Catharines is the largest city in Canada’s Niagara Region and the sixth largest urban area in Ontario. It lies in Southern Ontario, ~50 km south of Toronto across Lake Ontario, and is ~20 km inland from the international boundary with the United States along the Niagara River.
The group’s research interest is mainly focused on the synthesis of molecular inorganic materials and their applications in the fields of materials science, magnetism, optics and bioinorganic chemistry. Dr. Stamatatos is also a dedicated educator, delivering courses at both undergraduate and graduate levels. He is eager to see his students succeed in their coursework, research and beyond. The group is particularly diverse, including many female and international students. The laboratory is well equipped with dedicated major instruments, and through international collaborations with leading experts in their respective fields, we are well positioned to play a leading role in the development of nanoscale molecular inorganic materials.
