Obtaining a Ph.D. at Aix Marseille University in collaboration with CEA Cadarache is a great opportunity for me to become a highly qualified specialist in the field of plasma physics. My motivation for this Ph.D. position is to continue to work in the area of nuclear fusion where I have undertaken the advanced studies. I see my future career dedicated to this research area and I want to obtain as good education as possible.

Techniques maîtrisées

I have experience in working with experimental installations designed to study the properties of low-temperature plasmas, which was a part of Laboratory Course at Stuttgart University and a goal of "Hands-on Training Course in Plasmalab" at Eindhoven University of Technology. The data analysis of the experiments was afterwards performed with the applicable software and the extracted conclusions were assembled in form of the report, which has contributed to my ability to write scientific articles. I have also experience in programming gained while taking the course of programming in C++ Builder at the Center of Postgraduate Education in Kharkiv. I have also successfully completed the one-year course of Simulation Methods at Stuttgart University, which gave me necessary skills to simulate quantum mechanical systems, find numerical solutions of partial differential equations and conduct Molecular Dynamics and Monte Carlo simulations. Operating systems: Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Linux, Mac OS Languages of programming: C, C++ Programs: OriginPro, WinSpectrum, Mathematica, Matlab, Borland C++ Builder, Gnuplot, Microsoft Office, Open Office


I am a good listener and communicator who effectively conveys information verbally and in writing; collaborative, easy in learning languages, adaptive to life style and work in different countries. I have experience in organization and participation in team work with young people. I have taken part in many student activities at my university in Ukraine and abroad during the Erasmus Mundus FUSION-EP Master Program.
