Iasmi Sterianou

Dr Iasmi Sterianou MEng, PhD

Lecturer in Materials Engineering


Dr Iasmi Sterianou joined Sheffield Hallam University in 2013 as a Lecturer in Materials Engineering.

  • About

    She received her MEng in Chemical Engineering from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, in 2003, after completing her dissertation on Molecular Beam Epitaxy and its Application on High-Temperature Superconductors. She then did research on bismuth-based perovskites for high temperature piezoelectric applications and received her PhD in Engineering Materials from the University of Sheffield in 2008. Upon completing her PhD, she became a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Sheffield working in advanced functional oxides within Professor Reaney’s group.

    Currently, Iasmi also holds a Visiting Lecturer position at the University of Sheffield.

    Specialist areas of interest

    The focus of Iasmi's research is the synthesis and characterization of novel materials used in the manufacture of electrical and electronic components such as capacitors, microwave resonators for wireless communication devices, and actuators for automotive and medical applications. The areas of her research interests include

    • Piezoelectrics (lead free and high-temperature)
    • Multiferroics (Rare-earth doped bismuth ferrite)
    • Low sintering temperature microwave dielectrics
    • Electrophoretic deposition of functional ceramics

  • Teaching

    Department of Engineering and Mathematics

    Science, Technology and Arts

  • Research

    During her time as a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Sheffield, Iasmi has collaborated with Prof. Paula Vilarinho from the Department of Ceramics and Glass Engineering, Universidade de Aveiro, Portugal on electrophoretic deposition of microwave dielectrics. J. Eur. Ceram. Soc., 32: 4319-4326 (2012)

    She has also been a Visiting Researcher at the Institute of Materials Science, Technische Universität Darmstadt, Germany, where she did research on high temperature ferroelectric and piezoelectric response of ceramics and prototype actuators, in collaboration with Prof. Jürgen Rödel. J Electroceram., 28:95-100 (2012)
