Dr. Anna Kozina graduated from the Mendeleev University of Chemical Technology of Russia in Moscow in 2005 with the title of chemical engineer and the Diploma with honours in specialty ‘Technology of pharmaceutical and cosmetic products’. For her PhD she was invited by the group of Prof. Eckhard Bartsch at the University of Freiburg, Germany, where she studied the structure, dynamics and rheological properties of highly concentrated colloidal dispersions. After receiving her PhD in 2009 she joined the group of Dr. Tessy Lopez at the National Institute of Neurology and Neurosurgery in Mexico as a postdoctoral fellow.

Also, she worked as a postdoc with Prof. Ignacio Rivero at the Nacional Institute of Nuclear Research in Mexico and with Dr. Rolando Castillo at the Institute of Physics at the National University of Mexico.



    • Phase behaviour, structure and dynamics of highly concentrated colloidal dispersions.
    • Rheology of complex fluids.
    • Synthsis and characterization of model colloidal particles.
    • Development, synthesis, characterization of nanostructured materials for different applications. 




Scholarships are available for the students of different levels interested in working in the group.
