Welcome To My Page

Hi! I'm Filippos and currently I'm a PostDoc Associate at MIT's Center for Bits and Atoms, home of the 1000 Fab Labs around the world and sister lab of the Media Lab.

I am a participating to the famous How to Make (almost) Anything and the Machines that Make Machines class taught by Prof. Neil Gershenfeld from CBA and the Fluid Mechanics class by Prof. John Bush from the Dpt. of Mathematics at MIT!
Check them out below!

I am also part of CBA's team working on a recently awarded NIST grant that aims to make Materials Measurement Machines, Modeling and Design accessible to the Masses in collaboration with the Argonne National Laboratories and the Materiome Project in Chile!
