Dr Argyro Gili profile picture
  • Research Associate
  • Bartlett School Env, Energy & Resources
  • Faculty of the Built Environment

Argyro has been appointed as a Research Associate at UCL at the Institute for Sustainable Heritage since September 2017. She has been conducting research in Modelling the degradation of Plastic objects in museum artefacts in the framework of the European project called “COMPLEX: The degradation of Complex Modern Polymeric Objects in Heritage Collections: A systems dynamic approach” since then. Argyro received the MSc degree in Applied Mathematics and Physical Sciences in 2005. Subsequently she obtained an M.Eng. in Production and Management of Energy and a Ph.D in Modelling Nanoelectronic Devices from the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the National Technical University of Athens (Greece) in 2010 and 2016 respectively. 

Research Summary

Argyro’s current research focuses on the Mathematical Modelling of Polymer degradation applied to Plastic Museum Artefacts in the framework of the European research project called COMPLEX. She investigates the inter-relationships between different physical and chemical mechanisms which contribute to the degradation of objects in museums and collections over time. Her research relies on the Mathematical modelling of the mechanisms and transport phenomena which take place during degradation such as migration of plasticiser, physical damage degradation and photodegradation. 

Argyro worked initially in the field of Biophysics at the National Hellenic Research Foundation, where her role focused on the study of the interaction of the antihypertensive drug of Candesartan with lipid bilayers by using solid state 31P NMR spectroscopy and simulations. During her MSc, she investigated experimentally the effect of pre-treatment of Barley straw with sulphuric acid for Hydrogen production. Her PhD focused on modelling the operation of III–V Quantum Well Field Effect Transistor devices both in the ballistic and drift regimes. She performed both first-principles and compact modelling calculations of nanoscaled FETs and analysed the relative merits of each.

Teaching Summary

Prior teaching experience includes lecturing in classes of Physics (Electric circuits theory) at the Hellenic Navy Petty Officers’ Academy during 2014. Argyro has also conducted tutorials on simulating with Matlab and Simulink and has demonstrated laboratory classes on Power Electronics at the School of Pedagogical and Technological Education in Athens in 2011. She furthermore has been supervising and demonstrating laboratory classes on Semiconductors at the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at National Technical University of Athens (2011-2016) providing also short lectures on Basic Principles of Semiconductors.
