About Dmytro Kosenkov

Please find my curriculum vitae and contact information. My research is focused on the understanding of fundamental molecular interactions in complex biological systems for future applications in chemistry and medicine. I enjoy teaching general, physical, and computational chemistry courses.

Informal Biography

In 1999, I graduated from the Physical and Mathematical Lyceum (also known as FIZMAT) of the National Taras Shevchenko University in Kyiv, Ukraine. During my middle and high school years I actively participated and won many olympiads in Biology, Physiology, and Physics. In 2005, I graduated from the National Taras Shevchenko University of Kyiv with B.S. and M.S. degrees in Physics with concentration in Radiophysics and Electronics (Department of Radiophysics). My curriculum was focused on the Biological Physics, Chemistry, Quantum Mechanics, Applied and Theoretical Electrodynamics.

I am graceful to my first teacher in physics Vadim Pustovoit and my first scientific advisors: Prof. Yuri Gorgo at Taras Shevchenko University and Prof. Galina Dovbeshko at the Institute of Physics.

In 2009, I defended my Ph.D. thesis entitled: „Thermodynamic and kinetic simulations on biological molecules in the gas phase and in solution: evaporation, isomerization, and hydrogen bonding“ in the Prof. Jerzy Leszczynski group at Jackson State University. After the graduation I did my postdoctoral research with Prof. Lyudmila Slipchenko at Purdue University.

In 2012, I joined the Department of Chemistry, Medical Technology, and Physics at Monmouth University as an Assistant Professor of Chemistry.
