In a way I’m a nomad chemist. I’ve got doctoral degree in medicinal chemistry of G protein-coupled receptors, postdoctoral training in chemical biology of non-coding RNA, then developed NIR glucose sensors, and now I’m working on new sequencing technology. Geographically I was nomadizing West-ward, starting from Belarus until I hit San Francisco Bay Area, where I am now (2020).

This blog is for writing down some thoughts on the recent scientific literature. I am generally interested in organic chemistry, chemical biology, drug discovery, neuroscience, data science, and new biotechnologies.
