Papadomichelakis George

Associate Professor of Monogastric Herbivores Nutrition
Laboratory of Nutritional Physiology & Feeding

George Papadomichelakis graduated (1996) with a BSc in Agricultural Sciences from the Agricultural University of Athens (Greece) and MSc. in Agricultural Engineering. He then attained a PhD in Animal Nutrition at the Agricultural University of Athens in 2001. George spent six months (2004) as visitor researcher at the School of Veterinary Sciences (University of Bristol) and two years (2004-2006) as Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Agricultural University of Athens, where he was then (2006) appointed as Lecturer, Assistant Professor (2013) and Associate Professor (2020) at the Laboratory of Nutritional Physiology & Feeding (Department of Animal Science) in the specialization topic “Animal Nutrition with emphasis on Monogastric Herbivores“.
