Anna joined the University of Huddersfield in March 2015 as a University Research Fellow at the Institute of Skin Integrity and Infection Prevention, School of Human and Health Sciences. Prior to this employment Anna worked at the School of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Sciences, University of Manchester, Unilever R&D Port Sunlight and at the School of Food Science and Nutrition, University of Leeds. She graduated as a biophysicist (BSc 1996, MSc 1999) from St Petersburg State University (St Petersburg, Russia) and obtained her PhD degree in Physical Chemistry at the Lund University, Sweden in November 2005. The PhD Thesis is available upon request.
Anna is a molecular modeller working with problems of Life Sciences. Her research interests include studies of biomolecules on the atomistic and coarse-grained levels (Molecular Dynamics) with a particular interest in human skin structure, properties and permeation. Anna’s current computational research projects are:
Anna is also involved in the skin reperfusion studies (lead by Dr Karen Ousey), where she conducts experiments using Perimed Laser Doppler.
