Stelios A. Choulis is Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science and Engineering at the Cyprus University of Technology (2008-present). He is also the coordinator of a Strategic Infrastructure Project entitled "Molecular Electronics and Photonics", with a budget of 2 million euros, funded by the Republic of Cyprus through the Cyprus Research Promotion Foundation and the Structural Funds of the European Union.

Before he joined the Cyprus University of Technology, he was the device research and development (R&D) group leader of Konarka Technologies worldwide activities in the field of organic photovoltaics (2006-2008), under Dr C. J. Brabec (Chief Technology Officer, CTO, at Konarka Technologies) and member (Device Scientist) of the Osram Opto-Semiconductors Inc, light emitting diode R&D team at Silicon Valley (California, USA) which produced the first commercially available product (micro-display) based on semiconductor polymers (2004-2006). During his Ph.D. (University of Surrey, UK) and first post-doc research fellowship position at Advanced Technology Institute (1999-2002, University of Surrey, UK), both funded by the British Engineering and Physical Science Research Council (EPSRC), he investigated the optical properties of quantum electronic materials and optoelectronic devices. In 2002 he joined the group of Prof D. D. C. Bradley, FRS and Prof J. Nelson at the center of electronic materials and devices (Imperial College London, UK) as research associate fellow funded by British Petrol (BP), and worked on the opto-electronic properties of molecular semiconductor materials and devices (2002-2004).

Stelios Choulis has authored and co-authored more than 70 refereed journal publications and more than 10 patent families (USA, EU, Japan and worldwide patents) in the area of organic and inorganic semiconductor materials, processing and devices. From the citation report (ISI Web of Science), his work has been cited over 5000 times (h-index = 28).
