Short Bio

I graduated with a Master’s degree in Nanophotonics and Metamaterials from ITMO University (Saint-Petersburg) in June 2023. My master’s thesis focused on the study of optical phase change materials (oPCM) - materials that can be switched between two states with different optical properties. I investigated chalcogenide PCMs, in particular, the application of laser-induced periodic surface structures imprinted in PCMs for integrated photonic devices. My current research activities include nonlinear edge detection, linear and nonlinear spectroscopy of silicon metasurfaces.
