Kyriacos grew up in Nicosia, the capital of Cyprus. Being interested in sciences from a young age, he moved to Greece in 2007 to study for a BSc in Physics at the University of Patras. In 2012 he moved to the UK to pursue a Masters degree at the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Manchester where he obtained an MSc in Renewable Energy and Clean Technology. In 2014, he joined the EPMM group in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Sheffield to study for a PhD in organic strongly coupled microcavities under the supervision of Prof. David Lidzey. Since October 2018 he is a Postodoctoral Research Associate in the EPMM group. His main research interests are photonics, polaritonics and optoelectronics with an emphasis on strong light-matter interactions in nanostructures for the development of novel organic and hybrid optoelectronic devices.
In his free time, Kyriacos likes to read, meet with friends and travel.
