I obtained my PhD in Biological Physics from the Russian Academy of Sciences in 1999. After completion of the postdoctoral training at NYU Dentistry (2000-2001) and University of Calgary (2001-2005), I worked as a Research Assistant Professor at the University of Calgary and starting from 2010 as a tenure-track Assistant Professor at the Medical School at Dalhousie University, Halifax, Canada. I joined NYU Dentistry in June 2014 as a tenure track Assistant Professor and became Associate Professor in 2018.
The main focus of research in my lab is on mitochondria. In the lab, we use several experimental approaches, including imaging, electrophysiology and respirometry. We are interested in understanding the roles played by mitochondria in cell death. In particular, we are interested in understanding molecular mechanisms responsible for mitochondrial damage during stress, resulting in loss of energy homeostasis and cell damage. Our specific areas of study include mitochondrial ion channels and inorganic polyphosphate (polyP) metabolism.
