I grew up in Saint-Petersburg, Russia, where I attended St.
Petersburg State University, Department of Physics, and got my
bachelor degree in 2000. In the same year, I came to UCLA as a Ph.D.
student to continue my physics education at graduate level.
My current research interest is to study how one dimensional
nano-materials can be used for chemical and biological sensing. I am
especially interested in development of accurate methods that allow
real time sensing various biological molecules by carbon nanotube
field effect transistors.
