George was born in Greece in 1993.
He obtained his BSc in Chemistry from the University of Athens, which included a dissertation on synthesis and characterization of complex macromolecular architectures of polylactides. George graduated from the same university with a first-class honours Master of Science degree in Polymer Chemistry in 2017. During his MSc project, he focused on synthesis of biodegradable and biocompatible end-functionalized polymers under the supervision of Professor Marinos Pitsikalis.
George commenced his PhD studies in the Professor Haddleton's Group in the University of Warwick in 2017. He is sponsored by Lubrizol for the synthesis and investigation of oil additives for modern lubricating fluids using Catalytic Chain Transfer Polymerization.
