I'm a Belarusian-born researcher with a passion for biophysics and nanotechnology. After graduating high school with a gold medal and winning a national Olympiad in physics, I pursued my academic career.

I earned my Bachelor's degree and Master's degree in Physics with a specialization in Biophysics from Belarusian State University in Minsk, graduating with honors in 2015 and 2016, respectively. Since 2014, I've been actively involved in biophysics research projects and developed an interest in computer science applications in nanotechnology and biophotonics in oncology.

In 2019, I completed my Ph.D. thesis in Nanobiotechnology under the joint supervision of the University of Lorraine and Belarusian State University, for which I was awarded the "Lydie and Michel Wittner" research prize in France.

I joined Prof. Eugenia Kumacheva's group at the University of Toronto as a postdoctoral fellow in 2020, where my research project involves the development and validation of an innovative drug discovery and multidrug regimen platform that utilizes microfluidics and Artificial Intelligence to identify promising drug candidates with maximal therapeutic benefit and minimal potential for harm.

Development of a tumor-on-a-chip platform that utilizes microfluidics to test anticancer therapies. By incorporating Artificial Intelligence into this platform, the drug testing process was steamlined, resulting in faster and more accurate results. This innovative approach has the potential to improve cancer drug testing and pave the way toward personalized medicine.
