Pavel Troshin

Pavel’s areas of scientific interest include electrochemical energy storage, organic and molecular electronics, organic semiconductors, organic materials, organic synthesis, solar cells, field-effect transistors, sensors, fullerene chemistry, conversion of atmospheric CO2 to artificial fuel using solar light energy (“solar fuel”).

Dr Troshin graduated with an MSc degree in Organic and Physical Chemistry from Higher Chemical College of RAS at the D. I. Mendeleev University of Chemical Technology. In 2006, he obtained his PhD degree in Physical Chemistry from the Institute for Problems of Chemical Physics of Russian  Academy of Sciences (IPCP RAS). Over the last 10 years, he coordinated and led more than 20 different research projects, for which he raised state & industry grants, including grants  from the Russian Science Foundation, Russian Foundation for Basic Research, Russian Ministry of Science and Education, grants of European Science Foundation and contracts with Russian and foreign companies and research centers.

Pavel has authored more than 130 publications, supervised both PhD and MSc students. He has further developed and taught university courses on fullerene chemistry and organic electronics. Prior to joining Skoltech, he was also appointed as a head of the Laboratory of Functional Materials for Electronics and Medicine at IPCP RAS.
