Nadezda Pankratova was born in St. Petersburg, Russia. She is a graduate of the Department of Physical Chemistry, Faculty of Chemistry at St. Petersburg State University (Russia). She graduated in 2010 with a Diploma with Distinction, with a Master's thesis on the applicability of different potentiometric pH sensors for measurements in fluoride-containing solutions and relative durability of glass electrodes made from glasses of different compositions in aforementioned solutions (under supervision of Dr. Andrey Kiprianov). After her graduation she has continued her research work in the group of Dr. Andrey Kiprianov in the field of glass electrochemistry (chemistry of glass electrodes), focusing mainly on glass synthesis and characterization, in view of the development of glass-based ion-selective membranes for special applications as well as theoretical description of the correlation between glass composition and its potentiometric performance.
In February 2014 she has moved to Geneva where she joined the research group of Prof. Eric Bakker as a PhD student at the University of Geneva (Switzerland), Faculty of Science, Department of Inorganic and Analytical chemistry. Her PhD project was conducted within the interdisciplinary topic around electrochemistry, analytical and environmental chemistry and concerns the development of sensing principles, measurement tools and in-line pretreatment steps for the detection of nutrients and species relevant to the carbon cycle, and their integration for in-situ and on-site monitoring in freshwater and seawater with subsequent validation of field measurements. She has obtained her PhD degree in Chemistry in January 2018.
In February 2018 she joined the group of Prof. Giovanni De Micheli as a post-doctoral researcher in the Integrated Systems Laboratory, working in close collaboration with Dr. Sandro Carrara on the development of innovative electrochemical sensors for drinking water monitoring, closely related to an industrial development coordinated by a company of the EPFL Scientific Park.
Development of electrochemical sensors for continuous monitoring of inorganic ionic species in tap water and drinking water using amperometric and potentiometric approaches.
