Eleni Kyriakidou is Assistant Professor at the Chemical and Biological Engineering at the SUNY at Buffalo.  Dr. Kyriakidou received her BSc and MSc degrees in Chemical Engineering in 2007 from the Aristotelian University of Thessaloniki (Greece).  She earned a full graduate fellowship from the State Scholarships Foundation of Greece and pursued and completed her Ph.D. in Heterogeneous Catalysis under the supervision of Prof. Michael D. Amiridis at the University of South Carolina in 2014.  During her graduate studies she developed an expertise in the synthesis and characterization of highly dispersed silver, rhodium and gold supported metal catalysts.  In her postdoctoral research in Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Eleni advanced her catalyst synthesis skills and developed catalytic methods to treat automobile exhausts for the regulated emissions resulting from cold-starting engines.
