Dr. Evangelia Karaxi
Dr. Leonidas Gargalis
Metal AM Research Engineer
Evangelia is Mining and Metallurgical Engineer, with MSc in Materials Science and Engineering.
Leonidas is an Additive Manufacturing (AM) metals research engineer with experience…
Her PhD thesis was focused on the development and characterization of anti-corrosion coatings based on hybrid core-shell sub-micron materials with self-responsive functionalities. Her work experience is related with European and National research projects related with the development of advanced nanomaterials and the characterization of the corresponding composite materials and structures, with technical/scientific and managerial liabilities. Part of her research work has been presented in international and national conferences through 18 oral presentations.
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.
