Markos Skoulatos was born in 1983 and grew up in Egio, Greece. From his childhood, he was attracted by experiments and geometry. He studied physics and did his PhD with a university scholarship during 2004-2007 in Liverpool, in solid-state physics. His particular field is quantum magnetism and novel magnetic phases.

In 2008-2011 he worked at the research center Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin and then at the Paul Scherrer Institut in Switzerland, with a Marie Curie scholarship (2012-2014). From 2014 he works at the Technical University of Munich. He implements his ideas in large-scale facilities, with neutron beams and X-rays in France, Germany, Switzerland and USA. He publishes his work in international scientific journals and has given over 50 lectures and presentations on his research in magnetic materials in universities and conferences around the world (England, Greece, France, Switzerland, Sweden, USA, Japan, etc.).
