Olga received her PhD in 2011 from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville in Chemical Physics. Following her PhD she worked as a postdoctoral associate and research staff scientist in the Organic and Biological Mass Spectrometry Group in the Chemical Sciences Division at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) developing spatially resolved atmospheric pressure surface sampling/chemical imaging mass spectrometry approaches.


Currently she is research staff scientist in the Nanofabrication Research Laboratory at the Center for Nanophase Materials Sciences at ORNL investigating relationships between physical structure and chemical functionality at the nanoscale through the development of multimodal imaging platforms, and co-registration of multidimensional data.


Additionally, she work on engineering control in functional materials using helium and neon ion beams; investigating relationships between physical structure and chemical functionality through local tuning of material properties using a scanning helium ion microscope, probing the resultant material functionality using advanced scanning probe and optical spectroscopy; development of in-situ helium ion microscopy to understand influence of local structure on chemical dynamics and ion beam interactions.
