Dr. Mozharov obtained his MS in Chemistry from Moscow State University (Russia) and PhD in Analytical Chemistry from University of Strathclyde (UK). He joined Brian Marquardt’s group at Applied Physics Laboratory, University of Washington, in 2011. Having background in Analytical Chemistry and Photonics, Sergey’s primary research focus is addressing fundamental and practical challenges in development and application of spectroscopic tools to various process environments. This includes design and implementation of specialized fiber-optic and free space sensors, development of sampling interfaces and novel data processing algorithms. His interests cover a wide range of spectroscopic techniques. Currently Sergey’s work is focused on Raman, Fluorescence and Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy. He designed a number of sensors and probes that were successfully applied to monitoring batch, microfluidic, and continuous flow processes in harsh environments.
