Evangelos Daskalakis is a Research Associate at the Faculty of Science and Engineering, Department of Mechanical, Aerospace and Civil Engineering, The University of Manchester. Evangelos is Associate Member of Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA). He has received his PhD, in Mechanical Engineering, and MSc, in Advanced Manufacturing Technology and Systems Management, from the University of Manchester and his MEng, in Production Engineering and Management, from Technical University of Crete in Greece.

Evangelos joined the Materials Circularity (MC) research strand of the Textile Circularity Centre in September 2022. His main role, in the Textile Circularity Centre, is focused on the design, fabrication and testing of textiles, using biomaterials, produced through additive manufacturing methods. Evangelos has published over 20 research articles, reviews, book chapters and conference papers. Evangelos research interests are the development and characterisation of polymers, composites and smart materials, through additive manufacturing techniques, for tissue engineering and regenerative medicine. This includes developing anatomically designed scaffolds with pore size gradients that mimicked the architecture of human bone using composites for bone tissue regeneration, electrospun nanofibers for wound healing and skin regeneration, and biosensors for human applications.
