Andy Antzara received his Diploma in Chemical Engineering (2012) and his PhD (2018) under the supervision of Prof. Angeliki Lemonidou from the Chemical Engineering Department of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. He is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Laboratory of Petrochemical Technology, working on projects related with heat storage using thermochemical cycles and CO2 capture from cement plants and industrial flue gases.

He has been working in the field of reaction engineering and especially in process intensification of energy related processes via combining reaction and separation in a single step. His research focuses on development of novel materials and concepts for high–purity hydrogen production with reduced thermal demands and lower carbon footprint. His research activities mainly involve synthesis of materials, advanced characterization, reaction engineering studies and preliminary process design. Specifically, they involve the development of CaO–based CO2 sorbents with a high sorption capacity and stability of performance. The results of his work have significantly advanced research in the area of process intensification and have made a notable impact in the field, proving the progress beyond the state-of-the art. This is demonstrated by numerous publications and presentation in symposia and conferences, including 7 papers in highly prestigious scientific journals.
