Xenia received her M.Sc. degree in organic synthesis from Saint Petersburg State University in 2018. She joined the group in 2019 to pursue a Ph.D. in chemistry and nanotechnology, and her current research focuses on designing and synthesizing nanocatalysts for electrocarboxylation and other sustainable transformations. When not doing science, Xenia can be found drawing fanciful landscapes in pastel and acrylic.
