Profile

I started working at Chemical Engineering and Applied Chemistry of Aston University as a Marie Curie Fellow in May 2013 after a successful grant application. In my project I am developing luminescent (emitting light) materials to explore their application in materials-based and biological sciences.Before that I worked in the world-leading Nikolaev Institute of Inorganic Chemistry in Novosibirsk (Russia) in the area of metal cluster chemistry. My PhD focused on the development of crystalline materials, establishment of rules that govern the formation of these species and areas of their possible application.

  • 2005-2007 PhD in Inorganic Chemistry, Nikolaev Institute of Inorganic Chemistry, Siberian Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences, Novosibirsk, Russia
  • 2000-2005 MSc (Honour) in Chemistry Department of Natural Sciences, Novosibirsk State University (Russia)
  •  From 2013 Marie Curie Intra-European Fellow (Aston University, Birmingham, UK)
  • 2001-2007 Junior Scientific Researcher at Nikolaev Institute of Inorganic Chemistry, Siberian Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences.
  • Demonstrator for "Introductory Chemistry Laboratory" and "Organic Chemistry Laboratory"

 My research is devoted to the department of novel photoluminescent metal cluster/organic polymer materials and to assess their potential in light-emitting applications, such as Organic Light Emitting Diods and biological applications, such as bioimaging.
