Filippos Tourlomousis, PhD

Scientific Coordinator


As a graduate student,  Filippos pursued a postgraduate Research Mater at the von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics, where he studied the turbulence of smoke gas dynamics using extreme Particle Image Velocimetry. After that, he moved to the Stevens Institute of Technology (NJ, USA), where he completed the Ph.D. program under the supervision of  Prof. Robert Chang and Prof. Dilhan Kalyon, Director of the Highly Filled Materials Institute., where he got the Excellence in Research Award for his contributions in the area of rheology and processing of complex fluids. Building on his formal background in fluid dynamics and blending notions of electrohydrodynamics, polymer melt rheology, and machine learning, he developed a technology platform to geometrically program the replication of stem cells using micron-scale architected biomaterial systems.  After that, Filippos joined The Center for Bits and Atoms at MIT (source). His postdoctoral work at MIT focused on understanding how the spread of access to digital fabrication and data-driven modeling can enable us to design advanced manufacturing machines that measure online material models and advanced materials in the form of bioinspired morphing lattice robots

Filippos has published in prestigious journals such as Science Advances and Microsystems & Nanoengineering, Nature. His work has been featured in MIT News, The Economist, Wired, and the Vanguard of General Electrics, as the 5 coolest things that happened on Earth that week. Lastly, he has served as a reviewer for established journals such as Advanced Materials, Advanced Functional Materials, Advanced Engineering Materials, Biofabrication, and others.

Lastly, Filippos is an active entrepreneur. He is the founder of Superlabs AMKE, Greece's first private research accelerator for the deployment of scientific innovation. In addition to that, he is an E14-fund fellow and the founder & CEO of Biological Lattice Industries, an VC-backed startup company that is developing an AI-driven robotic biofabrication platform for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine applications. 

Research Interests

Filippos's main research interests lie in the field of intelligence and robotics infrastructure for self-driving materials science labs of the future (a.k.a. “robot scientists”). Together his team is currently developing AI-driven autonomous materials engineering platforms that include novel 3D (bio)printing methodologies for the fabrication of lattice structures with resolutions spanning microns to cm length scales for healthcare, energy and sustainability applications.
