Fellow in DNA Nanotechnology Grigory is a senior postdoctoral scholar in Bioengineering at California Institute of Technology. Trained as a professional dancer and a basketball player, Greg has always been fascinated by the capabilities and hierarchical structure of the human body. Reading Feynman’s visionary lectures on nanotechnology during his undergraduate studies at Moscow University, Greg became captivated by the growing promise of nanoscience. Now, Greg combines his interest in biology and nanotechnology to build structures approaching the complexity of living organisms, starting from small completely synthetic building blocks. He is interested both in understanding the fundamental principles required to build such structures as well as developing materials for applications in medicine and technology using these principles. Greg was awarded the 2019 Robert Dirks Molecular Programming Prize of the California Institute of Technology for his work engineering hierarchical, disordered, and reconfigurable programmable nanostructures, demonstrating principles for scaling up structural complexity, trading off deterministic control for structural diversity, and implementing autonomous structural reconfiguration.
