I am an Organic Chemist focusing on Synthetic Organic and Medicinal Chemistry. I earned an M.S. in Organic Chemistry at Moscow State University, and in 2005, I matriculated into the graduate program at the University of Denver, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry. After I earned a Ph.D. in Synthetic Organic Chemistry and Photo-Chemistry, I worked as a post-doctoral fellow at The Scripps Research Institute and Georgia Institute of Technology. Currently I am a Scientist at a local biopharm... [more]
I have a Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry and Photo-Chemistry, an M.S. in Medicinal Organic Chemistry, 4+ years of post-doctoral training and 3+ years of industrial experience at a local biotech company.
I am a native speaker of the Russian language. I was born in Moscow and went to school and college there. While studying English as a second language I took several courses "Russian as a second language for English native speakers". It substantially helped me to bridge two languages together and understand how the grammar and vocabulary of both languages are connected. In Denver I tutored Russian and helped several students to excel in writing and improve their speaking skills.
I have a Ph.D. in Organic Chemistry and 4+ years of post-doctoral experience in Total Synthesis and Medicinal Chemistry. I enjoyed tutoring in college, was a TA for several years in graduate school and continued teaching students during two of my post-docs and while being a Scientist at a local biotech company in Boston. I am a very visual learner myself and often use visual aids such as: charts, tables, schemes and info-graphics.
