Artemis obtained a BSc in Chemistry (Biochemistry) from the Kapodistrian University of Athens, an MSc in Polymer Science and Technology from UMIST and a PhD in Polymer Science and Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens in 1997. She then worked in the Department of Materials at Imperial College as a Marie Curie Research Fellow until 2003, when she accepted a position as Lecturer in Nanotechnology in NIBEC, University of Ulster. In 2005, she moved to the University of Birmingham as Birmingham Fellow and since 2012, she is a Senior Lecturer in Biomaterials and Nanomaterials.
Artemis’ main research interests are in the microstructural characterisation of materials for biomedical applications as well as in multifunctional materials with emphasis in orthopaedic antimicrobial materials. She has published over 70 research papers in international scientific journals. Artemis has an active research group and has supervised successfully to completion around 55 postgraduate students.
Artemis teaches Biomaterials at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. She has an interest in education research and has completed two projects on Threshold Concepts in Engineering funded by the Royal Academy of Engineering.
Artemis has recently coordinated a 3-year Marie Sklodowska-Curie RISE programme. NEXT-3D was a RISE innovative research staff exchange network that consisted of 4 academic participants and two non-academic participants from Europe and Australia. The research methodology was based on the multidisciplinary and inter-sectorial collaboration among the network participants and focused on three main themes: Materials, Processing and Characterisation to produce multifunctional coatings (devices) for maxillofacial and orthopaedic applications using 3D laser printing and sintering. The network participants acquire expertise in materials science and engineering, chemistry, physics, biology and medicine.
