Personal Statement

Angelos Tsanai (Angelos B. Canaj) grew up in Athens, Greece. He obtained his M.Sc. and Ph.D. degree in Chemistry at the University of Crete under the supervision of Professor C. J. Milios. His work was mainly focused in synthetic 4f and heterometallic 3d-4f coordination chemistry, with special interest in magnetic, magnetocaloric and/or optical properties. In 2015, he was awarded a Ph.D. Erasmus Scholarship and moved to the University of Edinburgh to work under the supervision of Professor Euan Brechin. For his Ph.D. research work he was selected to participate to 65TH Lindau Nobel Laureate Meeting and also received the St. Francis - Prof. Thyagarajan young scientist award. In 2016, he moved to the University of Glasgow as a post-doctoral research assistant working on Molecular Magnetism and specifically on Lanthanide-based Single-Molecule Magnets (SMM) under Hydrostatic Pressure, alongside Professor Mark Murrie. In 2019, he moved to the University of Liverpool and joined the group of Professor M. J. Rosseinsky. His current research interests involve the development of new correlated materials for superconductive properties.
