Hi, I'm Andrij Vasylenko.
I am a Research Associate at the Department of Chemistry, University of Liverpool.
My research focus is on algorithms for learning chemistry - recipes for machines on how to process and generate information about materials so that chemistry makes sense.
I am a Digital Theme Ambassador
We promote research collaboration with Ukraine
in UK-Ukraine Twinning Initiative.
The aim of my machine learning is to automate and accelerate the workflows for discovery of new materials.
Another motivation is to understand the relationships between materials and their functionality and to gauge their potential for applications in industry.
I started developing this modelling capability as a Research Fellow at the University of Warwick, 2015-2018.
I am grateful to the European Commission for granting me EMINENCE Scholarship, which allowed me to obtain PhD degree in Physics from Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan, 2013-2015, that brought me onto this career path.
My Theoretical Physics education started at the University of Lviv, where my passion for science was ignited by the ideas of the prominent figures, who once studied and worked there: Stanislaw Lem, Stanislaw Ulam, Stephan Banach, and Marian Smoluchowski.
