I am a Macedonian student currently starting with int. Ms/PhD studies at the Jacobs University in Bremen (Germany).

I have completed my undergraduate studies at this university. During my studies I was involved as a teaching assistant in the first year chemistry courses. Voluntarily, I have also given lectures at some high schools in Macedonia to support the preparation of the students for the International Mendeleev Chemistry Olympiad organized every year by the Chemistry Department at the Moscow State university.

Beside teaching, I have also been involved in research. On undergraduate level I have been working on synthesis and characterization on a novel large lanthanide containing polyoxometalate (POM) structures. The Ms/PhD studies are basically a continuation on that research however, now more into the direction of novel-metal substituted POMs.

I am interested to join IYC. R. Macedonia doesn't have any representative at the moment, so I would be interested to become a contact person for the moment. I would like to use my close contacts with some research, teaching and industrial chemists from Macedonia to organize different activities to promote chemistry in the coming year.

Please feel free to contact me for any related question you have.
