Elena Eremeeva is currently a PhD student in Chemistry and Material Sciences at the Department of Chemistry and Industrial Chemistry of the University of Pisa in the Chemistry Lab for Analytical Technologies (CATS). Her main project is dedicated to designing and manufacturing chemoresistance gas sensors on the base of semiconductor materials. The main idea is based on changing the number of vacant sites on the semiconductor surface, which has a significant role in the analyte gas sensing.
Her path as a researcher started during her master’s course. She was involved in projects connected with synthesising and applying nanomaterials for optical and anticounterfeiting purposes. That experience gave her skills in inorganic synthesis (sol-gel, hydrothermal, mechanical activation), deposition methods (inkjet-printing, spin-coating, dip-coating) and characterisation of the obtained materials (UV-Vis spectroscopy, AFM, SEM, XRD, z-potential, rheometry).

Research interests
For me, the most attractive part of the research activity is the possibility of the logical solution to the posed problem with some limited start conditions set. I am fascinated by the idea of using nanomaterials for low-cost devices such as sensors which you can use in your kitchen, work or factory spaces for different purposes.
