  • My current research interests focus, but not limited, on:

    • Studying of the structure, photophysical and photochemical properties of ligand-stabilized metal nanoclusters;
    • Gaining a deep, detailed insight into photoinduced processes in various supramolecular systems, including DNA- and protein- based structures.

    Major Grants:

    •  2015-present Luminescent metal nanoclusters in nucleoprotein matrices (RSF)
    • 2014-2016 Hybrid structures based on fluorescent metal clusters, DNA and graphene (SPBU Research Grant)
