Hello there! My name is Dimitrios - Georgios Kontopoulos and I would like to welcome you to my website!

If you are looking for a short bio, I originally graduated with a BSc in Molecular Biology and Genetics from the Democritus University of Thrace. I then proceeded to do a MRes in Biodiversity Informatics and Genomics at Imperial College London, which I completed with Distinction. Following this, I pursued a PhD degree at Imperial College London (primarily supervised by Samraat Pawar), in which I examined likely constraints on thermal adaptation, mainly across microbial species.

I am currently doing a postdoc at the Hiller group of LOEWE-TBG, working on comparative genomics of mammals and birds adapted to different thermal environments.
