BACKGROUND and OBJECTIVES
Since April 2022, I have been working as a Visiting Researcher at the Royal Institute of Technology in Nanostructure Physics in the group of Professor Vladislav Korenivski. The subject of my current research is spin dynamics and transport in magnetic nanostructures. Before that, I worked as a Head of Department of Physics of Films at the Institute of Magnetism NAS of Ukraine and MES of Ukraine. My areas of research are magnetic thin film nanostructure technology  and characterization, nanofabrications, physics of modern magnetism, magneto-electrical, magneto-optical and magneto-caloric measurements, spintronics, and applications. My past research was focused on developing and optimizing  technologies for preparation of thin films and magnetic nanostructures. I carried out an engineering development of a film deposition systems for combinatorial material science at the Institute of Magnetism. I am familiar with thin film characterization techniques and have a lot of experience with magnetic, magnetotransport, resonance, optical and magnetooptical measurements, as well as computer simulations of the various physical processes for different nanostructures, such as heterogeneous films, multilayers, spin valves,  spin tunnel junctions,   nanopilars,  nanoparticles for magnetic hyperthermia, etc. My current research activity also involves training of students, including planning research projects of the students, teaching them laboratory techniques, supervising their laboratory work, discussing results, preparation of reports, presentations and publications. I am used to work in a team and plan to establish my research work in collaboration with other research and technology centers.

GRADUATE UNIVERSITIES

2019-2021, Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Institute of Magnetism of NASU and MESU, Kyiv, Ukraine.
Doctor of Sciences thesis title: "Magnetic Properties of Multilayer Nanostructures With Temperature-Dependent Interlayer Exchange Interaction".
Description: The dissertation is devoted to complex research of magnetic static and dynamic properties of multilayer nanostructures with temperature-dependent interlayer direct and indirect exchange interactions through layers of weak dilute ferromagnetic alloys; magnetic properties of films of dilute ferromagnetic alloys as the main components of the above-mentioned multilayer nanostructures and spintronic devices built on their basis with temperature-induced switching of magnetic states.

2007–2009, Ph.D. Physics, Institute of Magnetism of NASU and MESU, Kyiv, Ukraine.
Ph.D. thesis title: "Magnetooptical and Magnetorefractive Effects in Metal and Metal-Dielectric Magnetic Nanogranular Films".
Description: A complex picture of gyrotropic and nongyrotropic magnetooptical properties of magnetic heterogeneous films at changes of their structure, composition and type of electronic conductivity has been received in the thesis. On the basis of structure analysis, magnetic, magnetotransport, optical, magnetooptical and magnetorefractive measurements, as well as modelling calculations the main results have been received: (i) correlation between statical (magnetoresistance) and dynamical (optical magnetoreflectivity) spin-dependent phenomena has been found; (ii) resonant influences of plasma oscillation on gyrotropic magnetooptical properties and optical phonon mode on nongyrotropic magnetorefractive phenomena have been established.
