Dr. Olga Borovinskaya

Olga Borovinskaya, born in 1985, studied chemistry at the North Kazakhstan State University (NKSU) and the ETH Zurich, where she completed her master's degree. In 2014, she received her doctorate in chemistry at the ETH Zurich and applied biosciences, specializing in analytical chemistry. Ever since then she has been interested in the analysis of single particles using ICP-TOF technology. Dr. Borovinskaya now works as an application scientist at Tofwerk AG and supports many different research institutes with her expertise in ICP mass spectrometry and the analysis of individual particles and cells.


“Quality is never an accident. It is always the result of intelligent effort.” (John Ruskin)


Dr. Borovinskaya is a member of the Swiss Chemical Society (SCG).


Olga Borovinskaya was awarded the ETH Silver Medal for her doctoral thesis. In 2013, she received the Swiss Aerosol Award 2013 for developing a new measurement device for nanoparticles.


Her research interests are in analytical chemistry, nanotechnology and mass spectrometry.
