Curriculum Vitae:

In 2002 she graduated the High school of science and mathematics "Boyan Petkanchin" in Haskovo, Bulgaria. In 2006 she got the B.Sc degree in Chemistry, Faculty of Chemistry of Sofia University "St. Kliment Ohridski". In 2009 she received M.Sc.degree in "Colloidal systems in modern science and technology", Faculty of Chemistry of Sofia University "St. Kliment Ohridski". In 2014 she got the PhD in Faculty of Chemistry and Pharmacy of Sofia University "St. Kliment Ohridski". Her thesis was "Rheology of Mixed Adsorption Layers of Proteins and Surfactants at Liquid Interfaces" with scientific supervisors Prof. Krassimir Danov Ph.D., D.Sc., and Assoc. Prof. Krastanka Marinova Ph.D. From 2007 until 2014 she worked as research associate in the Department of chemical and pharmaceutical engineering (DCPE), Faculty of Chemistry and Pharmacy of Sofia University "St. Kliment Ohridski". She has been a visiting researcher in the Research and Development Center in KLK-Oleo, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia (2015). She is currently on a Post Doc position in the DCPE, Faculty of Chemistry and Pharmacy of Sofia University. Since 2010 she has been involved in teaching course "Separation Processes in Disperse Systems" - exercises. Her research interests includes: experimental methods for measuring of dynamic and equilibrium surface tension; adsorption of proteins and surfactants on fluid and solid interfaces; kinetics of surfactant adsorption and surface rheology of fluid interfaces; contact angles and wetting on solid surfaces; oil drop detachment and deposition on solid surfaces. Up to 2017 year she has published 9 articles, cited 100 times in the scientific literature (h-index = 4).
