Foivos PerakisBiträdande lektor

Om mig

I am originally from Greece and my name is pronounced "Fee-vos", sometimes writen also as "Fivos".

My group utilizes X-ray scattering techniques to study the molecular structure and dynamics of supercooled liquids, hydrated proteins and aqueous solutions. Experiments involve Time-resolved X-Ray Diffraction and X-ray Photon Correlation Spectroscopy (XPCS) measurements at large X-ray facilities worldwide, such as X-ray synchrotrons and X-ray Free-Electron Lasers (XFELs).

See here the group members.
