Dr Eva Papadopoulou
Eva obtained her undergraduate degree in pharmacy from the National University of Athens. She then moved to the University of Strathclyde, where she obtained an MSc. in Pharmaceutical Analysis, and then Queen’s University Belfast for her PhD. Her PhD thesis, completed in 2011, was entitled “Detection of DNA components and DNA sequences by Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS)”. Following her PhD, Eva continued in Belfast for a short post doc, during which she worked on the sub-picomole detection of diagnostic markers for airway infections using Surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS). Eva joined the chemistry department of the University of Southampton in 2012 to work on a joint project between Prof. Phil Bartlett and Prof. Tom Brown’s research groups, funded by Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL). The project is on DNA detection and discrimination using SERS via measurement of electrochemically driven dsDNA denaturation.
