Author Archives: Dr. Olga Narygina


Dr. Olga Narygina studied physics at the Ural State University (Russia). After completing her master thesis on high-pressure, high-temperature studies of carbon nanotubes Dr. Narygina moved to Bayerisches Geoinstitut (University of Bayreuth, Germany) to obtain her Ph.D. degree. Her work there focused on high-pressure, high-temperature research of iron-containing silicates and alloys. This was followed by a post-doc position at the University of Edinburgh (The United Kingdom) where Dr. Narygina carried on with the material property research at extreme pressure-temperature conditions with the focus on the structural properties of alkali metals. In 2011 Olga joined Malvern Panalytical. She started as an application specialist XRD in our Supply Center, Almelo, the Netherlands. A few years later, she progressed into an XRD product managerial role. Recently Dr. Narygina moved to Australia and joined the APAC product/application specialist team.
