I am a nanotechnology engineer with strong background in theory of condensed matter physics. My current research projects are focused on developing novel optoelectronic devices based on dielectric metamaterials, phase-change materials, and 2D crystals.
I received my BSc (June 2006) and MSc (June 2008) degrees in solid-state physics from the Saint-Petersburg State Polytechnical University. In May 2010 I was awarded Marie Curie Fellowship in the FP7 ITN “Spin-Optronics” project and was enrolled by the University of Exeter for PhD in theoretical physics under supervision of Prof M.E. Portnoi. In March 2013 I obtained PhD and joined the NEST group led by Prof David Wright to work in the FP7 NMP Project "CareRAMM" and EPRC "WAFT" projects.
My main research competences are: electron-phonon interaction in solids, quantum rings, microcavities, light-matter coupling, graphene, flexible electronics, amorphous carbon, phase-change materials, non-volatile memories, plasmonic metamaterials, dielectric metamaterials, optical absorbers and beam steerers, photonic crystals.
