I was born in Moscow, Russia, and moved to America at the age of 12. I graduated from Villanova University in 2012 with a B. Sc. in Chemistry with a focus on physical and analytical chemistry. I performed undergraduate research under Dr. Bryan Eigenbrodt, where I applied perovskite synthesis and in-situ electrochemistry to fuel cell devices.

I joined the Borguet Group in Winter of 2016 to study catalytic behavior of plasmonic nanomaterials.

Research interests:

  • Photocatalysis
  • Plasmonic nanomaterials
  • Second harmonic generation
