Forthcoming joint mentoring of PhD student in Russia

Anastasya Klestova16-Dec-2017 - Anastasiya Klestova, a first-year master degree student at ITMO University in Russia under the mentoring of Dr Aleksandr Vinogradov will shortly enter the Ph.D. program jointly mentored by Mario Pagliaro, at Italy's Research Council.

"My research interest is colloidal chemistry. I would like to expand area of scientific interests. I like the idea of collaboration between the two Laboratories and exchanging experience", says Anastasiya, currently working at a Master's dissertation devoted to inkjet printing of planar waveguides at the Solution Chemistry of Advanced Materials and Technologies International (SCAMT) laboratory.

A leading material science laboratory of ITMO University based in St Petersburg, the SCAMT Laboratory focuses on nanomaterials and nanocomposites for optics, electronics and bioaplication by the means of soft chemistry. All projects are oriented to industrial implimentation, following publication of the research outcomes in high-impact journals.

Holding University status since 1994 the St. Petersburg National Research University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics (ITMO) is ranked 3rd among Russian Universities. It currently hosts over 11,000 bachelor and master degree students, about 900 PhD students and 1,500 foreign students from over 70 countries.

Jointly headed by Professors Vladimir Vinogradov, ITMO University, and David Avnir, Hebrew University, the Laboratory has strong international collaboration with leading scientific groups in Canada, Israel, Macedonia, Spain, Sweden and Swizerland.

In one year only, by October 2015 the team had increased from 5  to 11 members with an average age of employees 24 years, 2 agreements of international cooperation signed, and 10 articles and 6 patents published, with two nanotechnologies developed therein (in the field of fire fighting and protection of holographic production) undergoing industrialization.
