I am an enthusiastic molecular modeller and have over 10 years of academic and industrial experience in molecular modelling and simulation applied to problems in Life sciences. I study the interactions between the molecules, preferably bio-molecules. I have worked in the fields of food colloids, liquid crystals, protein interactions and bio membranes. My current research interests are in the area of topical drug delivery: how do molecules permeate into and through skin?
Nowadays I mainly use molecular dynamics (atomistic and coarse-grained) for my research but previously I’ve used Monte Carlo and Self-Consistent Field methods.
I graduated as a biophysicist from St. Petersburg State University, St. Petersburg, Russia. After that I obtained a PhD degree in Physical Chemistry at the Division of Physical Chemistry, Lund University, Sweden where I study interactions between polyelectrolytes and charged nanoparticles. I have moved to England in 2006 and prior joining the University of Salford in December 2016, I have worked at the School of Food Science & Nutrition, University of Leeds, Unilever R&D Port Sunlight, the School of Chemical Engineering & Analytical Sciences, University of Manchester and The Institute of Skin Integrity and Infection Prevention, School of Human and Health Sciences, University of Huddersfield.
We are organising a multidisciplinary workshop on skin permeation.
