My brief bio

Since a mid-school, I have been interested in astronomy, spending many nights doing amateur astrophotography, taking part in amateur astronomy summits, and observing the sky with a telescope. An obvious continuation of my childhood dread became an education at the Kyiv National Taras Shevchenko University on astrophysics. However, while making a choice of a Ph.D. topic I pushed myself out of my comfort (astrophysical) zone and applied to the Bogolyubov Institute for Theoretical Physics for quantum chromodynamics and heavy-ion collision topics. After several years of struggling of understanding quantum field theory and strongly interacting matter, I have finally mastered it.

After defending my Ph.D. thesis in 2015 I had been working as a junior scientific researcher at the Department of High Energy Density Physics of the Bogolyubov Institute for Theoretical Physics in Kyiv.

In December 2016 I joined, as a postdoctoral researcher, the Center for Astrophysics and Gravitation (CENTRA), COSTAR group led by Prof. Ilídio Lopes. In CENTRA I started to establish a bridge between astrophysics and quantum chromodynamics by becoming interested in neutron stars.

In December 2017 I came back to the Bogolyubov Institute for Theoretical Physics for 2 months, but already in February 2018, I started a second postdoc in CENTRA.

Starting from January 2019 I moved to Coimbra as an assistant researcher at the Centre for Physics of the University of Coimbra (CFisUC).
