Dimitris Tsiokos obtained his BEng degree in Electronic Engineering from the University of Southampton, and his MSc degree in Optics & Photonics from Imperial College London. In 2007 he completed his PhD at the National Technical University of Athens, Greece. Ever since, Dimitris held various research positions developing photonic technologies for telecommunications, optical interconnects and bio-applications. After nearly 10 years as a Principal Researcher at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, his passion for innovation in health and medical technologies led him to the founding of bialoom, a photonic biosensing technology startup that aims to accelerate diagnosis of acute infections. His technological interest spin around silicon photonics, plasmonics, biosensing and point of care diagnostics. Dimitris has authored and co‐authored more than 70 publications in peer‐reviewed journals and international conference proceedings, 4 book chapters and 3 patents.
