Oleksandr came to the US from Ukraine. He was born in the city of Dnepropetrovsk, which is one of the biggest industrial cities of the country. After one year of living in noise and industrial fumes with a little baby (that was him), his parents decided to move to the more quiet and picturesque city of Cherkassy, where he grew up and went to school.

In 2000, after graduating from High School, Oleksandr went to Kiev, the capitol of Ukraine - in his opinion, the most beautiful city in the world - where he entered the Chemistry Department of Taras Shevchenko University. During his undergraduate years, he was involved in research on semiconductor gas sensors based on tin dioxide.

In parallel with classes and research, he tutored students of the Physical-and-Mathematical Lyceum in Chemistry. This lyceum is a High School institution associated with Taras Shevchenko University.

In 2005 Oleksandr joined the Borguet research group. His research interests were in optics, non-linear phenomena, investigations of interface processes. His primary goal was to learn how to use intense fields to control chemical processes at interfaces.

Alumni member Oleksandr Isaienko assumed a position of Laser Scientist in the Research and Development department of Quantronix Corporation. With his new position Oleksandr will apply experience obtained during his Ph.D. studies in the Borguet group at Temple to various projects at Quantronix, including parametric sources.
