Dr. Baldycheva is a leader of STEMM Laboratory - a highly interdisciplinary academic research lab working on applied R&D of smart materials, devices, and systems for real world applications. STEMM Lab actively cooperates with the representatives of the industry, specifically conducting applied research that can be expeditiously commercialized and introduced to the market in short-terms.

STEMM Lab Divisions:

●       Opto-Electronic Systems Laboratory

System level integration of novel nano-materials into CMOS photonics devices, and the engineering of the thin film flexible (opto-)electronic devices for applications in communications, computations, energy harvesting, bio-chemical sensing and artificial intelligence.

●       Smart Composite Materials Laboratory

Development of new multi-functional materials for applications in flexible and liquid electronics, smart coatings, E-textiles, and building and structural materials.

●       Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (STEMM AI Lab)

STEMM AI Lab research interests span from development of high accuracy computational calculations to integration of machine learning and AI into the real world ecosystems of fintech, healthcare and communications.



Dr Baldycheva completed her BSc(Hons) in Physics at Saint-Petersburg University in 2008 and PhD in EEE at Trinity College Dublin in 2012. After Postdoctoral Position at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, she took a position of an Assistant Professor in Electronic Engineering at the University of Exeter in 2014, where she founded STEMM Laboratory.

She has over 100 scientific publications, plenary and invited talks to date. She is a Fellow of the Royal Higher Education Academy and a Fellow of Royal Microscopical Society.  Prof Baldycheva is an editor of the Nature Scientific Reports and Nanoscale Research Letters journals, and is an executive chair of the Royal Microscopical Society Engineering Section.
