Georgios joined Multiwave Metacrystal SA as CTO after running his own deep-tech startup, SensYnc, in the field of positron emission tomography. SensYnc was recently acquired by Multiwave Metacrystal SA. At Multiwave Metacrystal, Georgios leads the analysis, testing and development of metamaterial-based ultra-fast block detectors for positron emission tomography.
Georgios is an electronics engineer specialized in applied physics instrumentation. He started his career in 2009 at CERN, developing electronics for both low-level RF control for the proton synchrotron, the accelerator feeding particles to the LHC, as well as for the straw tracker of the ultra-rare kaon experiment NA62.
Building on this experience, in 2014 he earned a Marie Sklodowska Curie fellowship that led to his doctoral thesis concerned with the transdisciplinary application of novel technologies for the development of next generation MR compatible PET inserts, which he received in 2017 with honors. During this time, he was awarded the IEEE 1st NPSS student award in 2015, in San Diego, wrote several papers and is the first author of 2 patents related to detector and system development aspects of PET.
Being interested in all aspects of technology, Georgios spent a year as a patent examiner at the European Patent Office.
He left the EPO to found his own startup in 2019 on the development of a commercial PET system. Throughout his work experience, he developed unique knowledge in patent examination, leading multidisciplinary research projects, developing a system prototype for commercial use and nurturing a research and customer network. Georgios participated in the European Institute for Innovation and Technology Healthcare network.
