Eleazra Melidis siskin

Interdisciplinary Science Consultant


Passionate problem solver and project manager with a keen eye for optimisation and efficiency in interdisciplinary investigations. Over the past 8 years I have worked in research within academia in the fields of experimental mathematics, nanotechnology and molecular biophysics and consulted companies in commercial applications. With a never ending thirst for knowledge I have  a continuing education regime lately focused on behavioural neuroscience and applications in the commercial world. I seek the opportunity to undertake problem solving and research responsibilities where I can utilise and expand my education, experience and passion for investigation processes.

Key Skills

Interpersonal and management skills 

Management and supervision of student projects with great ability to delegate according to strengths. Administration support to personal and departmental grands especially in multi-disciplinary investigations.

Strong team and communication skills developed in charities project management.

Experimental and Laboratory experience / experimental design

Molecular Biology and Biochemistry experimental protocols Proteins, PCR, DNA-RNA, Western blot, crystallisation, Biophysical techniques and analysis.
Material Science and Nanotechnology characterisation techniques (TGA, AFM, Raman, SEM etc) , surface analysis, product design at the interface of biology, physics and chemistry
Health and safety procedures and COSHH form writing 

Theoretical research and Computer programming 

Analytical and mathematical problem solving, Fortran,  Python-SQL (advancing at the time), SPSS, Origin, Linux, UNIX, Molecular Dynamics, GROMACS, Monte-Carlo, Markov, Stochastic analysis,  Bioinformatics Packages and Statistical analysis

Work History

Nov 2014Present

Creative content consultant
  • Contribution to original idea conception and algorithm implementation.
  • Design of the charging algorithm (influenced by neuroeconomics) and constant improvement through simulations of financial outcomes (similar to casinos).
Jan 2009Present

Independent Consultant

Self employed

Consulting relevant to; mathematics, physics, criminal investigations, Intelligence, gambling, profiling.
Currently at 4Delta , a 3D Printing start up, aff. with National Physical Laboratory, UK



University of Cambridge, BP Institute 
  • Achievement 1; Orders of magnitude faster and lighter computational algorithm predicting packing fractions across dimensions and spheres of different radius.
  • Achievement 2; Design and execution of a novel experimental technique that eliminates the brazil-nut-effect and allows for a straight forward measurement of packing fractions.
  • Achievement 3; Theoretical/mathematical investigation of multidimensional packings (Voronoi) and implementation to applications spanning areas from neuroscience to mathematical cryptography.
  •  I had the privilege to be invited to attend courses of the prolific and historic Part III Mathematics (as a researcher not a student). I focused on mathematical analysis courses from both the applied and the pure perspective.

Research Assistant

University of Surrey, Soft and Condensed Matter Group
  • Assistance to PhD students since my first semester as an undergraduate. Tasks included sample preparation, rotation to all the characterisation techniques and later specialisation to Raman spectroscopy.
  • Experimental design aiming to investigate chemical actuation of CNT followed by the engineering design of custom-made adjustable addition to Raman spectroscopy.
  • Production of porous on PMMA surfaces at the nano-micro scale that are used as trigger sites of protein crystallisation as well as computational investigation of the phenomenon based on two-step Ising model.



M.Res Molecular Biophysics

King's College London

MRes (master of research) Molecular Biophysics; Year long experience with advance molecular biology and biochemistry laboratory techniques. Dissertation on computational simulations of prion proteins and protein- protein interaction followed by extensive statistical analysis that achieved a new understanding of the fibril formation pathways in neurodegenerative prion diseases.


MPhys Physics

University of Surrey

I specialised in medical and theoretical physics at the Post-Graduate level. Also, I attended courses and seminars in the departments of Mathematics.


I have been volunteering to the Gifted Children Program that I graduated. When I am in Thessaloniki I teach/train the students for the International Mathematical Olympiad. Since 2007 I have been consulting the students regarding their education but more importantly in collaboration with a psychiatrist I provide counselling regarding their special needs. Also, I worked as a regional ambassador of Non-profit organisation helping people with mood disorders and their families.
