Lyudmila M. Bronstein
Lyudmila M. Bronstein received an M.S. degree in polymer science and engineering from the Tver Technical University (Tver, Russia) in 1974 and a Ph.D. degree in polymer chemistry from the Nesmeyanov Institute of Organoelement Compounds of Russian Academy of Sciences (Moscow, Russia) in 1979. Between 1980 and 1981, she was a Postdoc at the Research Institute on Synthetic Fibers (Russia). From 1981 to 1986, she held a Junior Research Fellow position at the Nesmeyanov Institute of Organoelement Compounds of Russian Academy of Sciences, then from 1986 to 1988 she was a Research Fellow and from 1988 to 1997 she was a Senior Scientist. She was appointed a Leading Scientist in 1997. In 2000, she relocated to the USA and was appointed a Senior Scientist at the Department of Chemistry, Indiana University. Her honors include the Second prize in the Nesmeyanov Institute Competition for the Best Research Work in 1996 and the First prize in the Nesmeyanov Institute Competition for the Best Research Work in 1998. She was the organizer of the Pacifichem 2005 Symposium Polymer Nanostructures and Nanoparticles in Polymers. She coauthored 143 papers, review articles, and book chapters and 7 patents. Her research interests include development of nanostructured hybrid organic-inorganic materials with catalytic, optical, and magnetic properties, of composite solid polymer electrolytes for lithium batteries, of core-shell magnetic nanoparticles for biomedical applications.
