Iryna Kozina

PhD Student


I am a PhD-student in AGH University of Science and Technology in Krakow, Poland. Now I am working at Faculty of Foundry Engineering, Department of Chemistry and Metal Corrosion. My scientific work focuses on studying corrosion mechanism of magnesium and its alloys and also on their protection from corrosion by coating them with biopolymers for the further use in biomedical field as bone implants. I have always dreamt of  being connected with medicine, but love to chemistry took over. So I became an engineer after obtaining Master’s Degree in Electrochemistry. This project makes my dreams come true which are uniting chemistry and medicine within one position. This gives me a lifetime chance to use my knowledge, skill and opportunity to make a contribution on biomedical field.
