EducationI received my PhD in Materials Chemistry (GPA 4.0) at UCSB in 2015. My thesis focuses on the use of inorganic nanoparticles to accelerate clotting in trauma patients when they are at their greatest risk of bleeding to death.
I graduated from Cornell University (GPA 3.5) in 2008 with a BA, cum laude, in Chemistry, as well as a BA in History. My history focus was on Classical and Eastern European history. I made the Dean's list at Cornell 3 semesters, including both semesters senior year. I am qualified to teach a variety of subjects including Chemistry, History, Math, English, and Physics.
I graduated from Deerfield Academy in 2004, where I was an honor roll student every trimester.
ExperienceSummer is the perfect time to start preparing for standardized tests and college coursework. I have experience helping students prepare for college applications and first-year college course-work. I taught introductory chemistry at UCSB for 2 years and have previously coached and tutored children from age 5 through college.
I have excellent standardized test scores including a perfect 1600 SAT score (800 Math, 800 Verbal), perfect AP scores (5 in AP Chemistry, 5 in AP Calculus AB, and 5 in AP US History). I also scored above 700 in all my SSAT and SAT subject tests.
I speak Russian and Ukrainian and am a member of the Dobro Slovo National Honor Society. I also studied Latin in high school.
HobbiesI played club hockey at Cornell University and play at Channel Islands Ice Center in Oxnard. As a senior in high school, I was the goalie coach for the girl's JV ice hockey team. I've also coached the paralympic sport sled hockey for 6 years as a teenager.
I am also the founder and CEO for Cayuga Biotech, which is a biotech startup that seeks to commercialize my thesis.
