Evgeniya’s PhD studies were in the field of cryo-EM and 3D reconstruction, investigating the structure and function of capsids of a helical plant virus. It was a collaboration between Lomonosov Moscow State University, Institute of Crystallography in Moscow and Birkbeck, University of London. During her PhD, Evgeniya worked in close collaboration with structural biologists who were highly experienced in cryo-EM and image processing before the new detector technology popularised the technique to a broader base of scientists. After completing her PhD, she joined Thermo Fisher Scientific in the Netherlands where she worked as an Applications Scientist in the Eindhoven NanoPort facility – a state-of-the-art electron microscopy facility that provides users with hands-on experience with numerous analytical techniques. Evgeniya has years of experience and high-level technical expertise in electron microscopy, including cryogenic-EM, tomography and data processing techniques. Her role at DENSsolutions focuses on developing novel in situ liquid EM applications that demonstrate the power of their solutions. She creates new techniques and methodologies that will support the research of their customers, as well as perfecting their demonstration and installation protocols.
In this talk, she will speak about basics of liquid phase TEM and show some of its applications to life sciences.
