Nadezda (Nadia) Lapshina
Nadia joined the NEO Lab in November 2016 as a PhD student. She received her B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Radiophysics from N.I. Lobachevsky State University of Nizhny Novgorod (Russia) in 2007 and 2009 respectively. Her M.Sc. thesis was devoted to experimental and theoretical study on propagation and focusing of acoustic pulses in shallow water. During the years 2008 - 2011 Nadia worked as a research engineer at Scientific Research Institute for Measuring Systems (Nizhny Novgorod, Russia) where she developed components for control over nuclear power plants. Between 2011 and 2013 she worked as a junior researcher at National Research University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics (Saint Petersburg, Russia) where she conducted innovative theoretical research on light manipulation at the subwavelength scale by nonlinear plasmonic nanostructures. From 2013 till 2015 Nadia worked as an engineer in the fiber fabrication group of Russell Division in Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light (Erlangen, Germany). At the NEO Lab Nadia studies optical properties of peptide based nanostructures.
