Principal Investigators (PIs) become a more and more popular academic position. Are there established PIs in Russia? What prospects do they see in their work? We asked scientists from ITMO University who lead their own research teams and complete major projects for industrial partners to answer these and other related questions. In the first issue of the series, researcher Ivan Deyneka will discuss working on several large projects at once and becoming a PI by the age of 33.
Two students of the Physics of Nanostructures Bachelor’s and Physics and Technology of Nanostructures Master’s programs won the national competition for the best graduation papers in the category Photonics, Instrumentation, Optical Biotechnical Systems, and Technologies.

Pavel Tonkaev started his Master’s at ITMO University in 2017 after graduating from Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University (SPbPU). Since his second year here, Pavel has been studying perovskite materials in nanophotonics and optoelectronics. Current studies suggest that these materials may not only become the future of solar energy but also set the stage for various other technologies, from the creation of sensitive photodetectors to the study of living cells. In this article, Pavel talks about how to get into research in the second year of your Bachelor's, how his discoveries can help people in the future, and why scientists shouldn’t stick to one perspective.
As a result of a contest held as part of the Science and Universities national project by the Russian Ministry of Science and Higher Education, six new AI-focused laboratories are to open in St. Petersburg. Two of them have already launched at ITMO University – read on to learn about the way composite AI and intelligent technologies for infochemistry will be studied at ITMO.
The 10th International Young Scientists Conference in Computational Science (YSC) took place in early July at ITMO University. This year, the conference took place online and involved Master’s and PhD students from more than ten different countries. Read on to learn all about YSC’s topics, lecturers, and participants.
The PI School is designed for young scholars wishing to learn how to put together teams, pose scientific objectives, seek project funding, and publish their results in major peer-reviewed journals. At the end of the one-week course, students will present their roadmaps for creating research laboratories that will be noticed not only in Russia but also in the world.
Sergey Makarov is one of the youngest DSc holders at ITMO University. Together with Anvar Zakhidov, a professor at the University of Texas in Dallas, he led the formation of ITMO’s Laboratory of Hybrid Nanophotonics and Optoelectronics. Sergey has been nominated for various awards, including the President of Russia Award for Young Scientists in the Field of Science and Innovation and Research Excellence Award Russia as the youngest and most productive author in materials sciences. Not only does he run the laboratory, conduct research, and publish articles but also organizes conferences and international schools, and works as an editor in two scientific journals. ITMO.NEWS talked to Sergey to learn more about how to succeed in science, why it is important to reach out to the widest audience, what football players and scientists have in common, and whether it is possible to research on your own.
The school will feature presentations by leading scholars from different parts of Russia who will speak about their research teams known in the country and abroad. Participants will be able to create laboratories at their higher education institutions with the support of the school’s mentors. The school is organized by ITMO University and the Center for Strategic Research North-West.
