I joined the theory group at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research in Mainz as a PhD student in March 2008. My thesis project was on development of coarse-grained model for peptides. After defending the thesis in 2012 I continued working on this topic as a postdoctoral fellow. Since November 2012 I joined the organic electronics group, where I worked on the project MEDOS, developing force-fields for merocyanines and studying charge transport in bulk heterojunction solar cells.
I graduated from Lomonosov Moscow State University in January 2008 (Polymer Physics group, prof. A.R. Khokhlov, computer simulation subgroup, Prof. P.G. Khalatur). My diploma thesis was about "The evolutional way for design of copolymers with adjusted adsorptive properties". In this work I developed a model based on Monter Carlo method for designin copolymers with the specified adsorptive properties.
