Professor: Dmitry Koroteev
Dr. Leyla Ismailova graduated from the Lomonosov Moscow State University in 2013 majoring in geology and then started her graduate studies at the Bavarian Geological Institute of the University of Bayreuth, Germany. In 2016, she received a Ph.D. degree in Natural Sciences. During her bachelor and master study, Leyla was experimentally investigating diamond forming efficiency in chloride-silicate-carbonate systems at high pressures and temperatures. At the University of Bayreuth, she conducted an experimental study of the system FeO-Fe2O3-SiO2 at high pressures and temperatures with a focus on mantle minerals, such as garnet, bridgmanite, and post-perovskite.
Leyla has expertise in testing mechanical properties (density, porosity, permeability, elasticity) of rocks, synthesizing materials at extreme conditions, and investigating materials using different diffraction and spectroscopic techniques including Raman, Mössbauer, XANES.
During her studies, Leyla worked in different labs at European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) in Grenoble, France, Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron (DESY) in Hamburg, Germany, and Advanced Photon Source – Argonne National Laboratory (APS) in Argonne, USA. She has publications in high-profile peer-reviewed journals, including Science Advances, Nature Communications, Nature Scientific Reports, and American Mineralogist.
Leyla is a member of Digital Petroleum team
