Dr. Leonidas Gargalis
Metal AM Research Engineer
Leonidas is an Additive Manufacturing (AM) metals research engineer with experience in laser powder bed fusion (LPBF) process and metallurgy.
Leonidas holds a Master Degree in Production and Management Engineering and a Master of Science in Space Studies. He acquired his PhD in 2021 from the Centre for Additive Manufacturing (CfAM) at the University of Nottingham, UK. Leonidas specialises in material science of functional magnetic materials and highly conductive metals such as copper, processed via LPBF.
He has more than 5 years of experience in AM with various metals and alloys and his understanding of powder metallurgy as well as material vs laser interaction brings a new perspective in metals process development and optimisation. His versatile background enables him to deliver complex innovative projects with his extensive knowledge of novel materials and technologies. Leonidas enjoys being able to provide state of the art, high quality metal products for a variety of industries while being involved in the product lifecycle from concept ideas to end applications. His research work has been published in several journals and conferences.
Leonidas is a Mining and Metallurgical Engineer who graduated from NTUA and holds the diploma of International Welding Engineer (IWE).
He specialises in Material Science and Metallurgy and his thesis ”Mechanical Behaviour and Microstructural Evolution of Austenitic Stainless Steels in Cryogenic Applications” was presented in the Microscopy and Microanalysis 2021 International conference as well as in Panhellenic Conference of Metallic Materials 2019. Also, as a Welding Engineer has very good knowledge and experience in Welding Technology and Welding Procedures, which in combination with his specialization in metallurgy can solve many problems of industry and manufacturing procedures related to welding, heat treatment and additive manufacturing of metals.
Dr. Nikoletta Sargioti
Dr. Nikoletta Sargioti is a Materials Engineer, with an integrated MSc in Materials Science and Engineering and a PhD in Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering.
During her MSc, which was awarded by the University of Ioannina, Nikoletta developed a comprehensive understanding of material properties and their applications across various industries. She obtained her PhD in 2023 from Dublin City University, Ireland where she focused on metal-based minimally invasive medical devices and advanced 3D printing techniques. During her PhD, she engaged in numerous collaborative projects within the aerospace, automotive and biomedical industries focusing on the development and application of metal-based technologies. Her expertise is focused on the analysis, optimization, design and development of advanced materials using computational and factorial designs. She possesses an in-depth knowledge in the comprehensive characterisation of materials—including their physical, chemical, and mechanical properties.
Nikoletta’s Ph.D. journey was particularly transformative, improving her abilities in both independent and collaborative work, strengthening her abilities in leading complex projects. Actively contributing to the scientific community, she presented her findings at more than ten national and international conferences.
