Alumni Resnick Graduate Research Fellow
Andrey graduated from Caltech with a PhD in medical engineering. After initial training as a Medical Devices Engineer at Bauman Moscow State Technical University, he received his MS degree from a joint program between Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology and Massachusetts Institute of Technology. While at MIT, Andrey worked on designing and building a roll-to-roll chemical vapor deposition system for scalable synthesis of 2D materials. He earned his MS degree in medical engineering at Caltech in 2017. Working in Prof. Julia Greer's group, Andrey's research focused on additive manufacturing (AM) of metals and ceramics at nano- and micro-scale. His Resnick project explored using hybrid organic-inorganic materials to 3D print photocatalytic materials using lithographic methods. Developing new AM processes for photocatalytic materials provides a unique opportunity to create and study high surface-area, strong, self-supported photocatalysts with deterministic architectures that control light delivery inside the bulk of the photocatalyst. This can pave the way to creating safe and efficient photocatalytic reactors for household water disinfection, as well as for applications in photocatalytic hydrogen production and CO2 conversion.
Andrey is currently a Technology Development Module Engineer at Intel Corp.
