About Alyona


Bio

My name is Alyona, and in 2015 I received a Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota. My thesis was on high-intensity ultrasound and its effects on the human body. Specifically, our team formed a start-up that designed a new medical apparatus to monitor ultrasound energy entering the human body at high levels. While at the University of Minnesota I taught foundational engineering courses to a class of 80+ undergraduate students. Students appreciated my down to earth style of teaching, and our...

My name is Alyona, and in 2015 I received a Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota. My thesis was on high-intensity ultrasound and its effects on the human body. Specifically, our team formed a start-up that designed a new medical apparatus to monitor ultrasound energy entering the human body at high levels. While at the University of Minnesota I taught foundational engineering courses to a class of 80+ undergraduate students. Students appreciated my down to earth style of teaching, and our office hours were often full of college students waiting in the hallways.

During my career in MedTech, I had the privilege to work for companies such as Mayo Clinic, 3M, and Medtronic. All of my employers approached science with zest and vigor. And this passion for the wonders of math & physics is what I want to pass on to my students.

Let close with a famous quote by Benjamin Franklin, "An investment in knowledge pays the best interest."

Thank you for reading my story.

I am looking forward to meeting you soon.

I am intimately familiar with AutoCAD, specifically Fusion 360. We used it in graduate school to build custom parts. Parts were later made by ProtoLabs, a CNC machining service provider.

Knowledgeable and patient tutor.

Today was our first lesson in Physics. Alyona is a wonderful and knowledgeable teacher. My daughter said she feels much more comfortable with physics now. We will continue our lessons, thank you!
