Anna Mazhorova graduated from the Physics Department, M.V. Lomonosov’s Moscow State University, (Division of General Physics and Wave Processes, Moscow, Russia) in January 2009. She received her master Degree with Honors in Physics with the specialization in laser physics and nonlinear optics, defending an experimental thesis titled “Spectral-temporal transformation of the femtosecond laser radiation under filamentation in gaseous media” ( one of the best master thesis in Physics). Her work concerned the design and realization of a new scheme for generation of few cycle (1 optical cycle is 2.7 fs) optical pulses by the filamentation of the intense femtosecond pulses generated from a high power Ti:Sa laser system. This project was done in collaboration with prof. See Leang Chin (Centre d’Optique, Photonique et Laser (COPL), Université Laval, Québec, Canada). 

In August 2012 she defended her Ph.D. thesis, at Génie Physique, École Polytechnique de Montréal under the supervision of Prof. Maksim Skorobogatiy (Canada Research Chair in Micro and Nano Photonics). The thesis is entitled titled “Fabrication and characterization of fiber optical components for application in guiding, sensing and molding of THz and mid-IR radiation”. In addition, she investigated the possibility of using of THz light for physical, chemical and biochemical sensing.
During her PhD studies one of the projects concerned E.coli bacteria sensor based on the evanescent field of the fundamental mode of a suspended-core terahertz fiber. This project has been done in collaboration with prof. Mohammed Zourob from Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique (INRS-EMT, Varennes). Following the exciting results achieved, she became (June 2012) one of the award winners of the “Étudiants-chercheurs étoiles” competition (Fonds de Recherche du Quebec Nature et Technologies) with her article entitled “Label-free bacteria detection using evanescent mode of a suspended core terahertz fiber”. Since October 2012 Dr. Mazhorova is a Post-Doctoral fellow at INRS-EMT in Roberto Morandotti's group (UOP).
