Iryna Khodasevych graduated with a PhD in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the RMIT University in 2013. She also holds Bachelor and Master degrees in Applied Physics, Radio Physics and Electronics. Iryna worked as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at RMIT (2013-2016), being part of ARC Centre of Excellence for Ultrahigh Bandwidth Devices for Optical Systems and Australian Renewable Energy Agency MUSIC projects.

In her research work Iryna demonstrated pneumatic, elastic and nonlinear tunable metamaterials for microwave and terahertz frequency ranges. Iryna designed, modelled or characterised optical metamaterial applications for solar absorber and waveguide integrated plasmonic sensing, nanoparticle lenses and wearable medical sensors.

In 2017-2021 Iryna worked as Lecturer and Senior Lecturer at Melbourne Institute of Technology, doing teaching, course design and assessment in Engineering Mathematics, Telecommunications and Engineering Projects.

Iryna has received several awards including Best Poster Award at Metamaterials Conference (2012), Oral Presentation Award at COMMAD Conference, (2012), Higher Degree by Research Publication Grant at RMIT (2013), Teaching Excellence Award at MIT (2020).

In 2021 Iryna joined the Integrated Nanosystems Lab lead by Prof. Francesca Iacopi, in the Faculty of Engineering and IT, UTS as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow. She will focus on design, modelling and characterisation of tunable metasurfaces with graphene via application of analytic and numerical methods derived from electromagnetic wave theory.
