Kristina Kristinaityte

Kristina Kristinaityte was born in Klaipeda, Lithuania. She finished her studies at Vilnius University, where she got a B.Sc. degree in Applied Physics in 2010, an M.Sc. degree in Medical Physics in 2012, and a PhD degree in Physics in 2019. Throughout her Bachelor’s studies, Kristina worked as a member of the High-Intensity Laser Physics group. Right after graduating from her Master’s, she was employed as a medical physicist at the Vilnius University Hospital Santaros Klinikos and decided to pursue her career in science becoming a PhD student addressing potential future developments of nano-structure materials and NMR-based methods applied in clinical routine. During the third year of Doctoral studies, Kristina got an opportunity to gain valuable experience doing ERASMUS practice in the NanoBioMedical centre in Poznan for two months.
In October 2020, Kristina Kristinaityte joined Dr. Tomasz Ratajczyk’s group – the Nuclear hyperpolarization of molecular systems and nanomaterials at the IPC under the PD2PI project. The primary interest of the research is the practical utilization of NMR-light-based techniques for real-time monitoring of photoreactions. Part of the investigation is held at the University of Regensburg, Institute of Organic Chemistry, Germany under the supervision of Prof. Dr. R. M. Gschwind.
