Curriculum Vitae in pdf

I was born in a small town Sokol, Vologda Region in North-West Russia. In 2010, I enrolled in the Physics Department of the Saint-Petersburg State University (SPbSU). Two years later, I joined the research group of Prof. Anatoly Pravilov. In 2014 and 2016, I obtained my B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Molecular Physics, respectively. My work was mainly focused on experimental studies of electronically excited states of iodine molecule and revealing the coupling mechanisms betweenthem. Since July 2016, I am a Ph.D. Student at IST Austria in the group of Prof. Mikhail Lemeshko. We are developing a quasiparticle approach based on the angulon theory in order to describe the behavior of rotating molecules trapped inside in superfluid 4He nanodroplets. Apart from physics, I like to play chess and some other intellectual games. Therefore, don’t hesitate to challenge me.
