I joined Prof. Dr. Svetlana Mintova's scientific group as a postdoctoral research fellow. My research involves development of new approaches for synthesis of template-free nano-sized zeolites and advanced characterization with a special attention to the influence of symmetry elements on the zeolites crystal structure features.
Research Highlights: novel tiles, secondary building units and crystal structures.
The basis of Crystallography, Crystal-Chemistry and Mineralogy, I acquired informally, as a free listener at the Department of Crystallography at Saint Petersburg State University, with contribution of Assoc. Prof. Dr. Semenova T. F., Prof. Dr. Filatov S. K., Assoc. Prof. Dr. Nazarchuk E. V., Prof. Dr. Britvin S. N., Prof. Dr. Siidra O. I., Assoc. Prof. Dr. Charkin D. O., as well the Head of the Structural Chemistry Lab, Grebenshchkov Institute of the Silicate Chemistry Prof. Dr. Bubnova R. S. and the Head of the Department of Crystallography and Chairman of the Kola Science Centre of the Russian Academy of Science, cor. mem. of RAS, Prof. Dr. Krivovichev S. V. On 15 February 2022, I officially defend my thesis at the Saint Petersburg State University and became a doctor of geological and mineralogical sciences.
For almost 10 years, at the Saint Petersburg Mining and State University, I was dedicated to investigations of the crystal-chemistry of mineral related oxycompounds, as well as containing Tl(I), mainly investigated via Single-Crystal X-Ray Diffraction in terms of both traditional cation-centered complexes and anion-centered polyhedral.
