Hi everyone! I’m Siarhei, an independent Belarusian scientist and certified researcher specializing in surface and interface chemistry. In addition to my scientific work, I’m also a science communicator, journalist, and writer for HABR/MEDIUM. My scientific interests are diverse and transdisciplinary, and I’m particularly passionate about promoting citizen science. This website aims to establish an online presence in a more straightforward and “traditionally scientific” manner compared to the offerings of trendy social media.

My research interests cover:

  • Colloid science: adsorbents, catalysts, and their supports, nanomaterials, and hybrid composites, porous and fibrous aerosol filtering materials.
  • Industrial toxicology: decontamination of heavy metals, plastics degradation
  • Public safety: defense against radiation, antidotes, non-ionizing radiation, EM absorbers, personal protective equipment (PPE), Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE)
  • Green and Phytochemistry: ethnobotany, bioinsecticides, biorepellents
  • FoodTech: novel and alternative food sources, food safety
  • Medical electronics: wearable devices, medical sensors, Point-of-Care
