Towards TWO-DIMENSIONAL HUMANS
Or how you can fail BioPhysics but end-up doing state-of-the-art BioElectronics...
Join us for our regular “ECE postdoc talks series” where we meet with our postdocs who share their experience: on academic pathways, scientific endeavors, personal successes, and pitfalls. In this upcoming talk with Dr. Kireev, you might learn the specific differences of study and research in Russia, Belgium, Sweden, and Germany and the possibility to gradually change the research interests from quantum physics towards nanoelectronics and bioelectronics. Modern science is highly interconnected, and one can hardly stay just a physicist or just a biologist. One has to be the jack-of-all-trades, be on top of the ever-evolving research in all adjacent fields, be curious to go sideways, aim to solve complex multi-discipline problems, collaborate, brainstorm crazy ideas, and be prepared to fail.
Dmitry Kireevis currently a Research Associate at the University of Texas at Austin, working with Prof. Deji Akinwande. He is a part of the Microelectronic Research Center and the Electrical and Computer Engineering department. Dr. Kireev is working on the real-life applications of two-dimensional materials such as graphene, MoS2, and others in the fields of bioelectronics, neuroprosthesis, soft tissue, and epidermal electronics.Within the scope of the recent (2020) pandemic, Dmitry has shifted his focus towards building graphene-based biosensor targeted for COVID-19 virus detection. He finished his Ph.D. work in 2017 at the Institute of Bioelectronics of Forschungszentrum Julich (Germany), working on graphene-based devices for neuroprosthesis and interaction neuronal cells and general bioelectronics. Dmitry is a recipient of a prestigious EMM-NANO scholarship and performed his MSc study in KULeuven (Belgium) and Chalmers University (Sweden) with majors in nanoelectronics (2011-2013). Before finding his way into bioelectronics, Dmitry has completed his BSc (2010) and MSc (2012) in Moscow National Research University of Electronic Technology at the department of quantum physics and nanoelectronics, with a major in
