Themistoklis Prodromakis holds a Corrigan Fellowship in Nanoscale Technogy and Science, funded by the Corrigan Foundation and LSI Inc., within the Centre for Bio-inpisred Technology in the Institute of Biomedical Engineering at Imperial College London. His background is in Electron Devices and micro/nano-electronics processing techniques. Themis currently conducts research on bio-inspired devices for biomedical applications.
He received his PhD (Application of Maxwell-Wagner Polarisation in Monolithic Technologies) from the Circuits and Systems Group (Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering) at Imperial in 2008, during which he successfully pioneered the use of interfacial polarisations for demonstrating miniature passive devices. In 2006 he contributed in setting up the Cleanroom facilities and the Microelectronics Laboratory at the IBE. His research has led in establishing a wide-number of bio-inspired devices and technologies for mimicking biological functions as well as linking these with electronics, with some examples including: memristive elements, integrated CMOS chemical sensors, cell-culture platforms, biocompatible encapsulation techniques, advanced neural interfaces and lately ion-channel mimetic (single-molecule) transducers.
