Dr. George J. Tserevelakis was born in Heraklion, Greece, in 1982. He received the B.Sc. in Physics (2006), M.Sc. in Optics and Vision (2008) and Ph.D. (2013) from the University of Crete, Greece and he is currently a post-doctoral fellow at the In Vivo Imaging Lab of IESL/FORTH. During 2013-2014, Dr. Tserevelakis was a post-doctoral fellow and member of the Institute of Biological and Medical Imaging in Munich. His research interests include the development and application of novel optical, acoustic and optoacoustic imaging systems for the monitoring of complex biological processes in a label-free manner at microscopic and mesoscopic scales. His expertise also includes the incorporation and use of femtosecond laser nanosurgery methodologies for the in-vivo processing of microscopic specimens, such as cancer cells, C.Elegans larvas etc. Furthermore, his scientific work is focused on the design of compact, hybrid instruments employing cutting-edge imaging technologies and adaptive optics systems, optimized exclusively for the diagnostics of Cultural Heritage artefacts, as well as, the on-line monitoring during the laser cleaning of these items. So far (2017), he has published 19 scientific papers in international journals, 4 papers in refereed conference proceedings, one book chapter and has one patent to his name.

Mr. Ioannis Paradisanos is a 3rd year Ph.D. candidate at Physics Department of University of Crete (UoC) and performs his research activities at the Foundation for Research and Technology—Hellas (FORTH). He received his B.Sc. degree from the Materials Science and Technology Department of the UoC in 2012 and his M.Sc. degree from Physics Department of the UoC in 2014. His research interests include ultrafast laser synthesis and spectroscopy of 2D materials, multifunctional responsive hierarchically structured surfaces and novel ultrafast laser micro/nano processing techniques.
