Dmitry S. Koktysh

Research Assistant Professor of Chemistry
Lab Supervisor, VINSE Analytical Laboratory


Dr. Koktysh’s research is focused on fabrication of advanced nanomaterials. He is working on development of diverse synthetic and derivatization strategies which provide the ability to simultaneously control the chemical composition, structure, and properties of the hybrid nanoparticles.  His effort is also devoted to the characterization of nanosized particles with an emphasis on synergetic properties in hybrid systems with well-controlled structure. Different nanomaterials including semiconductor, magnetic particles are studied with reference to many potential applications in material science and medicine.

Dmitry manages and trains students in the VINSE Analytical User Facility at Vanderbilt.
