A visitor from Ukraine

This week we welcomed Dr Viktoria Blavatska from the Institute for Condensed Matter Physics of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, Lviv. Viktoria has come to us thanks to the financial support from a joint initiative of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences (NAS) and the Polish Academy of Sciences (PAS).

Viktoria’s background is in theoretical statistical physics, but she plans to use the visit to explore new research areas and work on theory aspects of some biological projects we have been pursuing in the group. Perhaps we even manage to convert her to a biologist (I am only half-joking 🙂 )?
