Short CV

Maria Louloudi is a Professor of Inorganic Chemistry at the Chemistry Department of the University of Ioannina.

She is the head of the Biomimetic Catalysis & Hybrid Materials Research Laboratory that she founded She started her research career as a doctor of the same Department.

Then she worked as a postdoctoral researcher with a Human Capital & Mobility grant for 2 years in the laboratory of Dr. D.Mansuy (member of the French Academy of Sciences), CNRS, Paris, France on the catalysis of hydrocarbon oxidation by metalloporphyrins. Subsequently, with a TMR-Return Grant on the catalytic oxidation of phenols from biomimetic Cu-systems, she returned to Ioannina where she began her academic career as a lecturer in the Department of Chemistry.

She was Chair of the Chemistry Department of the University of Ioannina for two consecutive terms (2018-2020 and 2020-2022). She served as a member also of the 1st three-member Steering Committee of the Institute of Materials & Computing Science of the University Research Center of the University of Ioannina, after selection (8/2019-8/2022).

Her main research interests focus on Molecular Catalysis and the Development of Functional Hybrid Materials. She develops Molecular Catalytic Systems for in situ H2-Production from C1-organic molecules, CO2 reduction, hydrocarbon oxidation and pollutant degradation with green oxidants. She designs and develops bio-inspired materials through surface chemical modification of matrices (antioxidants, additives, biomimetics).

She has published more than 110 research publications in peer-reviewed international journals (ISI), she holds 29 patents on Applications of Hybrid Materials, and she has supervised (included those which are in progress) 16 PhD Theses, 31 Master's Degrees, 79 Diploma Theses and 4 Postdoctoral Researchers.
