Tatiana Perova completed her Ph.D. degree at Leningrad State University in 1979. She joined the staff of Vavilov State Optical Institute (St. Petersburg, Russia) in 1979, where she was involved in the characterization of condensed matter using far-infrared and Raman spectroscopy. In 1998, Professor Perova took a position of the Research Director of Microelectronic Technology Laboratory (MTL) at Trinity College Dublin, and from 2007 she has been the Director of MTL. Professor Perova’s research interests are principally related to the optical characterization of condensed matter, with an emphasis on the analysis of the composition, stoichiometry, molecular orientation, stress and strain in amorphous solids, liquid crystals, photonic crystals, and semiconductors. She has over 220 publications in books and referred journals.
