I was born in 1977 in Lipetskii region of Russia (central region). In 1993 I passed entrance exams to chemistry-specialised division of the Kholmogorov's physic-mathematical school at Moscow State University. Immediately after the graduation, I successfully entered  Moscow State University to carry out a chemistry degree. My diploma work is entitled  "Ethenylcyclopentadienyl compounds of lithium: reactions with elementoorganic electrophils and application in metallorganic synthesis" was carried out at the Laboratory of Coordination Organometallic Compounds under the supervision of Prof D.A. Lemenovskii and Drs M.V. Borzov and D.P. Krout'ko. After graduating from the MSU in 2000, I undertook a PhD at the University of Nottingham in laboratory of crystal engineering under supervision of Dr N.R. Champness and Prof M. Schröder. I have passed my viva on the 17th of august of 2004, while working with Judith A.K. Howard at the University of Durham. Currently I am working for EMBL/EBI in Cambridge.
My research includes
  • Synthesis of novel ligands
  • Synthesis of coordination networks
  • Software development
