Yerzhan Zholdassov

  • Doctoral Student, Braunschweig Lab, Nanoscience Initiative

I received my B.S. in Chemical Technology from South Kazakhstan State University (Kazakhstan) in 2012 and M.S. in Chemical Engineering at Gubkin Russian State University of Oil and Gas in 2016 under the supervision of Prof. V.M.Kapustin. After graduation I worked 1 year in oil industry before joining the Ph.D. program in Chemistry at CUNY.

Research Interests

Currently I work in Adam Braunschweig’s group on nanolithography techniques.
