With a grant worth 1.13 million euros, 24-year-old Katerina Ayfanti will continue her research for the next five years in the Laboratory and Engineering Department of the Aristoteleio University of Thessaloniki. She is the youngest researcher in the world, who succeeded in the first competition for grants from the European Research Council (ERC), to be funded for her research on the subject: “Investigating the transition from microscale to nanoscale: theory/experiment and comparisons/applications”. Her aim is to study and research her theory at the university for the next few years.

Katerina Ayfanti was accepted by the Technological University of Michigan in the United States at the age of 16 and completed her pre-graduate studies in three years. Subsequently, with a scholarship from the US National Foundation of Sciences, she did post-graduate work at Cambridge University in Britain. In 2005, at the age of only 21, she had already completed her doctorate at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands, where she was distinguished as the youngest scientist to have received her PhD in that country.
