Elena Talnishnikh works as an industrial researcher. In this function she is responsible for identifying and assessing external industrial and social problems and developing and realizing technological solutions. Typically, realization of these solutions is done through the creation of a multidisciplinary project, implementing and managing content in close collaboration with customers. Currently she focuses on the development of mote technology for exploring inaccessible areas, where modern state-of-art technologies cannot be applied.
Before joining INCAS³, Elena worked as a researcher at the Laboratory of Biophysics at Wageningen University. The focus of this research was on exploring new applications for mobile NMR in plant science.
Elena earned her Ph.D. in Physics from the Institute for Technical and Macromolecular Chemistry at the RWTH Aachen University. At the end of her doctoral project, a mobile Halbach scanner was developed for geophysical applications.
Elena received both her master’s and bachelor’s degrees from Saint Petersburg State University where she studied physics with a specialization in molecular spectroscopy.
