About Dmitri 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 (FizMat) of the National Taras Shevchenko University in Kyiv, Ukraine. During my middle and high school years I participated in many Olympiads in Biology, Physiology, and Physics. I received B.S. (2003) and M.S. (2005) degrees in Physics (Radiophysics and Electronics) from Taras Shevchenko University where I have completed my coursework in the departments of Medical and Quantum Radiophysics. However, I was always inserted in application of physical principles to explain biological and chemical phenomena.

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 where I worked as undergraduate researcher.

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 Assistant Professor of Chemistry.
