Research center
Despoina Kossyvaki currently works as a PhD student in the group of Smart Materials at the Italian Institute of Technology. Her current main focus is the fabrication of polymer based smart colorimetric indicators able to trace pH changes deriving from alterations in the metabolic activity of microorganisms. The indicators are developed by combining biocompatible polymers with functional molecules of natural origin, able to change color at environments of different acidity.
