I received my bachelor degree in Chemical Engineering from Belorussian State University of Technology (Cum Laude) in 1999. After that I joined the Institute of Physical Organic Chemistry Of Belorussian National Academy of Sciences and obtained my Ph. D. from there in 2005. Same year I moved to USA and started my Ph. D. in Materials Science in State University of New York at Stony Brook which I completed in 2011.
My research interests center around physical, chemical, and biological properties of Nanomaterials. I am particularly interested in design of novel nanomaterials for various applications including drug delivery, imaging, and catalysis. Another big part of my research is dedicated to safety assessment of Engineered Nanomaterials (ENM) in relevant exposure models.
Currently I am a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Stony Brook University, SUNY. Before that I hold a Visiting Assistant Professor position at the same department (Jan’13 – Jan’15). One year earlier I worked as a Research Scientist in the Stem Cell Facility at Stony Brook University from May'12 till January'13. I also worked as Adjunct Professor at Stony Brook University and also at Suffolk County Community College for several years (Jan’11 – May’13). Before that, I was a Research Assistant at Cancer Prevention Center at Stony Brook University Hospital (Aug’08 – Aug’11) and at Garcia NSF/MRSEC Polymers at Engineered Interfaces (Aug’06 – Aug’08). My first research position was in Institute of Physical Organic Chemistry where I worked as Research Scientist in the Laboratory of Ion Exchange and Sorption (Sept’00 – Aug’05).
