ANAGNOSTOPOULOS RESEARCH GROUP

PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR - GROUP LEAD

DR. VASILEIOS ANAGNOSTOPOULOS

Dr. Anagnostopoulos received his M.Sc. in Analytical Chemistry (Environmental Track) and his Ph.D. in Radiochemistry from University of Patras, Greece.


He has extensive research experience in radioanalytical techniques and his projects have involved radionuclide speciation modelling, kinetic and thermodynamic studies of actinides' interaction with natural organic matter, as well as the use of Instrumental Neutron Activation Analysis (INAA) for environmental sample analysis.


He has participated in worldwide standard material testing trials organized by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), while he has spearheaded projects funded by the Department of Energy-Office of Environmental Management and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
