Specialization

Ilia's main project involves technique development for high field EPR and DNP (at 7T). Presently, Ilia and his team are developing new approaches for more efficient DNP using unique capabilities of their spectrometer capable of generating arbitrary shaped pulses at 200 GHz. 

The second project Ilia works on is part of large multidisciplinary collaboration dedicated to development of underwater adhesives based on mimicking the adhesives used by mussels in the ocean. They employ a range of techniques such as confocal microscopy, microrheology, EPR and Overhauser DNP to characterize the material and molecular properties of recently discovered adhesive coacervate phases.
