Junior Research Scientist
Center of Life Sciences

Professor: Evgeny Nikolaev

Zherebker Alexander graduated from Lomonosov Moscow State University, Chemistry department at 2012 and started his PhD in laboratory of natural humic system with Professor Irina Perminova. His thesis was devoted to application of high-resolution mass-spectrometry to explore molecular features of Natural Organic Matter. In order to extend information obtaining by mass-spectrometry he developed approaches of selective isotopic labeling of backbone carbon and functional groups in individual compartments of humic substances. Alexander published a series of papers on his research in high-rank journals. He made a project with prof. Patrick Hatcher in Norfolk, USA as a visiting researcher. His achievements were marked by international humic substances society with training and travel awards. Alexander defended his thesis in 2017 in the field of organic chemistry.

Alexander participated as a performer and as a leader in different research projects on high-resolution mass-spectrometry as well as analysis, classification and medical application of humic substances.

Analysis of human body fluids during spaceflight by Mass-spectrometry and participating in the Horizon 2020 project.

Application of ion-mobility mass-spectrometry and imaging of native tissue sections.

Understanding of role of Natural Organic Matter in various ecosystems and its interaction with live organisms.
