Ivan Derbenev

Innovate UK Postdoctoral Research Fellow

Dr. Ivan Derbenev obtained his M.Sc in applied mathematics and physics (2006) from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology and Ph.D. in Physics and Mathematics (2013) from Troitsk Institute for Innovation and Fusion Research (TRINITI), Russia. There followed postdoctoral research of complex plasmas in TRINITI. In 2015 he joined the Computational Nanoscience group headed by Elena Besley to develop electrostatic models describing the behaviour and self-assembly of charged particles in ionized media. In 2017 he succesfully applyed for a membership of International Space Science Institute with the project "Electrostatic Manipulation of Nano-Scale Objects of Lunar Regolith". In 2018 he joined the project "Novel Sodium Reduction Technology" funded by Innovate UK, in collaboration with Mondelez International and the Division of Food Sciences (University of Nottingham).
