Georgios Varnavides

Graduate Student

Department of Materials Science and Engineering

After completing his B.S. in Materials Science and Engineering at MIT, Georgios joined the Bioelectronics group in November of 2017. His research focuses on heat transfer across (hard-soft) interfaces at the nanoscale, so as to better understand heat dissipation of the group’s polymer-coated magnetic nanoparticles. Georgios spends some of his time at Harvard, where he is co-advised by Professor Prineha Narang’s Materials Theory group. When he’s not drawing funny phonon interaction diagrams, Georgios enjoys camping, generative art, and singing along to musical videos on YouTube.
