Dr. Dimitra Sazou

Dimitra Sazou is a Professor of Physical Chemistry in the Department of Chemistry at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH), Thessaloniki (Greece). She earned a Ph.D. in Chemistry from the AUTH using a fellowship from the State Scholarships Foundation/ IKY. She was visiting Researcher/Professor at the Department of Chemistry, University of Houston (USA) and the Department of Physical Sciences, University of Cyprus. She is teaching Physical Chemistry, Electrochemistry and Materials Chemistry at the Department of Chemistry, AUTH. She is the co-author of 3 textbooks.

Prof. Sazou's current research interests include corrosion-passivation of metals and their protection by using intrinsically conducting polymers focusing on understanding the physico-electrochemical processes leading to uniform and localized corrosion via the analysis of the nonlinear behavior of metal electrodissolution-passivation reactions. She supervised the research of many PhD and MSc students as well as of numerous undergraduate students for their diploma thesis.

She has authored more than 90 refereed publications with her co-workers and the book "Corrosion Protection of Metals by Intrinsically Conducting Polymers", CRC Press (2015), whereas she participated in many national and international scientific conferences. Prof. Sazou acts as a reviewer in more than 25 scientific journals, she has invited in scientific meetings to present her research results and was a member of the scientific and organizing committees of national and international meetings. She is a member of the International Society of Electrochemistry (ISE), for which was elected Regional Representative in two terms for the ISE members in Greece, the American Chemical Society, the Electrochemical Society (USA) and the Association of Greek Chemists.
