Welcome to Digital Discovery!
We are delighted to welcome Professor Ekaterina Skorb, ITMO University, Russia, as a new member of the Editorial Board of Digital Discovery.
Ekaterina Skorb obtained her PhD in physical chemistry. She was a postdoc and Alexander-von-Humboldt fellow at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces (MPIKG, Germany) with Prof. Helmuth Möhwald. From 2013 she worked with Prof. Peter Fratzl (MPIKG) as a group leader. She was a visiting scholar at Harvard (USA) in Prof. George Whitesides’ group from 2016 to 2017. Since 2017 she has worked at ITMO University, Saint Petersberg, Russia where she is now a Full Professor and Director of the Infochemistry Scientific Center (ISC).
An interdisciplinary view on problems from various directions – chemistry, mathematics, IT, and biology – helps to solve complex issues and guide science development for the next generation. There are several ambitious projects running now at the ISC, such as synthetic cells, chemical computing, and chemical origins-of-life as well as sensor, lab-on-a-chip, and implant development.
