Rozalia-Maria ANASTASIADI Chercheur CNRS
Ingénieur de recherche | Génie Biologique (GB) | UTeam
She has worked across different disciplines, from nonmaterial synthesis and characterisation to electrochemistry, sensors development and analytical chemistry, both academic and industrial settings in different countries.
Rozalia-Maria received her BSc in Chemistry from the University of Ioannina (Greece), particularly, during her thesis she focused in certain steps of the total synthesis of biotin. She pursued a MSc in Food Science & Technology at the University of Wageningen (The Netherlands) and during her MSc thesis she developed an in vitro digestion protocol to determine the carotenoid bioaccessibility from fruits. In 2016 she received a Marie Curie industrial PhD fellowship to develop sensing systems for the quantification of biomarkers in saliva to achieve enzyme phenotyping, key for the development of personalised medicine tools. She joined the group of professor Marina Resmini at Queen Mary University of London (QMUL, UK) where she focused on the design, synthesis and characterisation of biomimetic polymers specific for xanthines. During her industrial secondment at the R&D department of illycaffé S.p.A. in Trieste (Italy) she developed an electrochemical sensor for the quantification of xanthines in saliva. She received her PhD in January 2020 and worked as manager in the Chemistry research laboratories at QMUL.
