Theodosia Gougousi is a Professor in the department of Physics at UMBC (University of Maryland, Baltimore County). She received her BS in Physics from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece in 1990 and her MS and Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Pittsburgh in 1993 and 1996. Prior to joining the faculty at UMBC in 2004 she held postdoctoral appointments at the University of Maryland, College Park and North Carolina State University. Her research interests include the deposition mechanisms and properties of thin films, interfaces and other low dimensional materials. Her laboratory uses a combination of vacuum and high pressure approaches to study the deposition of materials on planar and high aspect ratio topography. These techniques include Atomic Layer Deposition and Supercritical Fluid Deposition. She has authored or coauthored more than 40 journal articles, and has more than 50 contributions to conferences.
