In 2018 he received his Ph.D. in Cryobiology from the University of South Bohemia in Ceske Budejovice which was a part of the Horizon 2020 research infrastructure project.
During his studies he cooperated with leading specialists from all over the world and took part in several international research projects and development programmes as a coordinator as well as a member of a research team. Apart from that, he was also actively involved in supervising of master’s students, teaching, publication in scientific journals and presentation of research findings at international conferences. He also gained experience in implementation of new standards, legislation, quality assurance codes and audit during elaboration and production phases of medical devices.
In AMIRES, Yevhen is responsible for H2020 project MARVEL (Evolving reversible immunocapture by membrane sensing peptides: towards scalable extracellular vesicles isolation) and acts as a Dissemination Manager of ORGANTRANS project.
About his work Yevhen said: “I was looking for the way how to improve the world – with AMIRES I found it! Contributing to different projects that bring fantastic technologies into reality I feel that I contribute to improving the quality of life in our world, and this is perfectly aligned with my life philosophy”.
In his free time, he likes to invent different things or improve the existing ones. This refers to electronics, computer technologies, tuning of transport such as bikes or cars, and work with design in both virtual and material environments. Apart from this, he’s passionate about mobile photography and video making, which are also quite often applied for project dissemination. It is worth saying that the sports activities are not staying in the last place, cycling and workout are the most enjoyable for him. Traveling, seeing new cities and countries, and hiking in beautiful nature are also on his interest list.
