Graduated from the Belarussian State University (Minsk, Republic of Belarus) in 1997 with a B.Sc. in Physics (specialization-Atomic Physics and Physical Informatics), Tatsiana worked as a teacher of physics in the secondary school in 1997-2000 (Borisov, Belarus). In 2000-2003 she worked as a researcher in semiconductors (Belarusian State University, Minsk, Belarus), conducting research in the area of low-temperature properties of crystalline semiconductors. In 2011 joined the Centre of Industrial and Engineering  Optics under the Work Placement Program. She began her work as a postgraduate student in IEO in September  2012, funded by IRCET and supervised by Dr Izabela Naydenova and Dr Suzanne Martin. Tatsiana successfully transferred to the PhD register in February 2014 and was awarded her PhD in 2017.

 

Research Interests:

Current research deals with the investigation of the irreversible nature of the hologram’s response to high humidity and temperature and exploiting that response for the fabrication of environmental humidity and temperature indicators for applications in medical device and pharmaceutical packaging.

 

Current Project:

 Investigation of irreversible changes in the properties of photopolymer holograms in response to changes in the environmental conditions, funded by the Irish Research Council for Science, Engineering and Technology.

Supervisors: Dr. Izabela Naydenova, Dr. Suzanne Martin.
