Larisa Lvova was born in Primorsk, Leningrad region, Russia, in 1974. She received her M.S. (1996) and Ph.D. (1999) degrees in physical chemistry from St. Petersburg State University, Russia. Her research work is concerned with the development and investigation of various sensing materials such as polymeric film membranes and their application for qualitative and quantitative analysis of complex liquid media. The elaboration of the new sensitive materials for application in artificial olfaction and taste systems, electronic nose and tongue in particular, is another area of Lvova scientific interest. As a Postdoctoral Fellow, Lvova worked in the area of chemical sensors development in the Chemical Sensors Research Group at the Chemistry Department of Kwangwoon University, Seoul, South Korea (2000-2001) and at the Department of Chemical Sciences and Technology of Tor Vergata University, Rome, Italy (2003-2004). Currently, she is a research scientist at the Laboratory of Soil Biochemistry at the Faculty of Biology and Soil Sciences of St. Petersburg State University and collaborates to the Chemical Sensors Group of Tor Vergata University, Rome, Italy. Her current research interest involves the design and synthesis of new sensing material for the development of novel chemical sensors and the ion-selective membrane electrodes, in particular for industrial, environmental, and analytical applications.
