Victoria Nikitina

M.S. Chemistry, M.V. Lomonosov Moscow State University

Ph.D.  Electrochemistry, M.V. Lomonosov Moscow State University

Dr. Victoria Nikitina received her Ph.D. from the M.V. Lomonosov Moscow State University (MSU) in 2013 under the supervision of Prof. Galina Tsirlina and Prof. Renat Nazmutdinov. During her Ph.D. studies, Dr. Nikitina took part in multidisciplinary international collaborations with Prof. R. Buchner, Regensburg University, as a DAAD scholar and Prof. Th. Wandlowski, Bern University. In 2014-2018 Dr. Nikitina held postdoctoral appointments at MSU (Department of Electrochemistry) and at Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology (Center for Energy Science and Technology). Since 2019, Dr. Nikitina is Assistant Professor at CEST.

At Skoltech, Victoria Nikitina leads Environmental Electrochemistry group, which specializes on electrochemical energy storage and conversion mechanisms to empower the transition from fossil fuel-based economy to renewable energy. We focus at developing metal-ion battery solutions for use under all-climate conditions, electrochemical conversion of carbon dioxide to fuels, green hydrogen production by (photo)electrolysis.
