Mavrommatis Alexandros

Assistant Professor in Animal Nutrition
Laboratory of Nutritional Physiology & Feeding

In 2014 he graduated with ΒSc in Agriculture Science and in 2019 he received his Ph.D. in Animal Nutrition from the Agricultural University of Athens. He conducted post-doctoral research in the project Microalgae for Microbiome: The effect of dietary supplementation with microalgae on goats’ microbiome using metagenomics and metabolomics approaches which was funded by the State Scholarships Foundation (I.K.Y.) (2019-2021) while he also participated in three competitive research projects funded by EU and Greece (2019-2022). He has lectured at the Veterinary School of the University of Thessaly and the Department of Agribusiness & Supply Chain Management (Agricultural University of Athens). Lastly, he has contacted research as visiting scholar in the Consorzio Agrario di Parma in cooperation with the Veterinary Department of the University of Parma (10-11/2022).
Research Interests
  • Implementation of experimental trials (Applied Nutrition) for the evaluation of various feed additives and unconventional feedstuffs
  • Research on symbiotic microbiomes (e.g. rumen microbiome) using current molecular techniques (metagenomics)
  • Research on gene expression and gene pathways regulating various cell functions such as immune-oxidative interplay
