Hello, my name is Elizaveta Gangrskaia, and I am happy to become a new PhD student in iStOMPS!
I finished a double degree programme at the Lappeenranta-Lahti University of Technology (Finland) and at the Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University (Russia) and got an MSc in Physics and an MSc in Technology. In my Master’s thesis I was studying (both experimentally and theoretically) microparticle diamagnetic trapping to develop a levitodynamics platform. During my Bachelor’s studies, I was researching metal nanostructures on glass substrates for Surface-enhanced Raman Spectroscopy applications.
Within Subproject A, I will work on experimental generation of enhanced isolated magnetic fields and their implementation for spectroscopic studies of lanthanide ions.
