Background and professional experience

  • Graduated from the Department of Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology of MUCTR in 2008, specialty "Nanomaterials".
  • Since 2008 - postgraduate of the Department of Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology of MUCTR.

Additional information

  • Responsible organizer of Nanocenter of MSTU named after A.N. Kosygin.
  • Winner of SPM images "ProImage Contest 2010", organized by NT-MDT.
  • One of the competitive images:

    "Dancing" It's a AFM-image of polyvinyl alcohol film, contain tripsin.
    It's a crystalline part of polymer film.
    Scan size: 12,5x12,5 um
    • The image was taken using an atomic force microscope Ntegra Prima with probe - CSG01 with a radius of curvature of 10 nm in contact mode.
    • On the image is shown the stage of the process of micellization in water-soluble polymer film - polyvinyl alcohol containing trypsin - an enzyme class of hydrolases with anti-inflammatory and anti-edematous action and is able to selectively split fabric, undergone necrosis.
