Christos Markos received his B.Eng. (Hons) in 2007 and M.Sc. (with Distinction) degree in 2008 from University of Liverpool in Electrical Engineering and Electronics. He continued his studies as PhD student at the National Hellenic Research Foundation, Theoretical and Physical Chemistry Institute, Athens and received his Ph.D. in Optics/Optoelectronics in 2013. His main research activities are broad within the field of photonics and particularly in gas-filled hollow-core fiber lasers, chalcogenide glasses and multimaterial fiber optics towards development of novel neural interfaces and optoelectronic smart devices. Christos has joined and worked with several distinguished research groups in USA and Europe including the Multi-material Optical Fiber Devices Group in College of Optics and Photonics (CREOL), USA and Mid-Infrared Photonics Group in the University of Nottingham, UK among others. He has established three state-of-the-art laboratories at DTU Fotonik for soft glass synthesis, extrusion and fiber fabrication and two more labs dedicated for his Neurophotonics activities. Christos holds the position of Associate Professor, and he is the head of the Neural Devices and Gas Photonics group at DTU Fotonik. He is a member of OSA, SPIE, IEEE societies and co-founder of NORBLIS IVS.
