Schmidt AI in Science Fellow
Anastasia received her Ph.D. in Physics (2018) at ITMO University, St. Petersburg, Russia, focusing on developing chiral nanoparticles for biomedical applications. In 2019, she joined the Department of Chemical Engineering (laboratory of Professor Nicholas Kotov) at the University of Michigan as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to deepen her expertise in nanoscale chirality. In 2022, Anastasia was awarded the Innovation Fellowship at Biointerfaces Institute (University of Michigan) to explore and work on research translation and commercialization.
During the Schmidt AI in Science Fellowship, Anastasia will work on the integration of state-of-the-art AI methods for computer vision to streamline the automated analysis of complex objects using electron microscopy. The main research question of the Fellowship will be whether it is possible to utilize these methods in a generalizable and scalable way to accelerate the advancement of Materials Science in different domains.
