Personal Statement:

Marat O. Gallyamov received his Ph.D. degree in Physics of Condensed Matter in 1999 at the Lomonosov Moscow State University (Russia) in the field of Scanning Probe Microscopy (supervised by Igor V. Yaminsky). In 2002–2004 he stayed as Research Fellow with Prof. Martin Möller at Organische Chemie III—Makromolekulare Chemie (Universität Ulm, Germany), where he performed SFM research on different synthetic macromolecular objects, including study of vapour-induced conformational transitions. Afterwards he headed several research projects on various polymer applications at the Faculty of Physics, Lomonosov Moscow State University, including the project dedicated to the development of new membrane-electrode assemblies for high temperature fuel cells based on polybenzimidazoles doped with phosphoric acid. Since that time he became actively involved in fuel cells research.  In 2009 he received D.Sc. degree (Russian degree similar to German habilitation) in Polymer Physics at the Lomonosov Moscow State University in the field of Scanning Force Microscopy of Polymer Structures. Since 2010 he is leading the "Laboratory of Polymers at Surfaces and New Polymer Materials for Fuel Cells" at the Department of Polymer and Crystal Physics (Lomonosov Moscow State University). His current research interest is focused on the research in high temperature polymer-based fuel cells and in the usage of supercritical carbon dioxide for deposition of nanostructures on different substrates and matrices for advanced applications.
