Iryna Andrusenko

Post Doc
Electron Crystallography
Research center

Iryna Andrusenko got Bachelor and Master Degrees in Applied Physics at the Pedagogical State University of Sumy, Ukraine. Later she moved to Germany, where she attended PhD in Chemistry at the Johannes Gutenberg Universität working with electron diffraction and microscopy for the analysis of different classes of metastable nanocrystalline materials. Since 2018, she is employed as Post Doc at Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (Center for Nanotechnology Innovation@NEST), where she is working on the structural investigation of organic materials. Her research interests comprise the development and use of advanced electron microscopy and diffraction methods for the analysis of pharmaceutical compounds, hybrid organic-inorganic structures, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and organic charge-transfer complexes. She is a group-oriented and result-oriented researcher used to collaborate with other academic institutions and with private companies.
