Andrii studied physics at the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv, Department of Nuclear Physics and Engineering. He graduated in 2012 with a Master’s degree in Nuclear and High Energy Physics. During his studies he participated in internships at the Research Center Jülich and at the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg, gaining experience for his scientific career.
In September 2012 Andrii started a Fellowship at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), where he joined the ANKA THz group. Within this group he has been involved in experimental studies of coherent synchrotron radiation and particular properties of machine operation. Longitudinal bunch profile measurements have been his main field of research. He also had a secondment at Cobolt AB, the laser manufacturing company. At Cobolt he studied the manufacturing process of solid-state lasers.
