Hi! My name is Anastasia (Ana) Gorelova. I’m a scientist at the University of Pittsburgh Vascular Medicine Institute and a freelance science writer. I’ve been living in the US for the last 4 years after moving here from Moscow, Russia.

I am a professional member of American Heart Association and American Association for the Advancement of Science. For the second consecutive year my own research work is funded by a prestigious fellowship named after Nobel Prize laureate Dr. Louis Ignarro.

In addition to my research I have been involved in organizing Pitt TEDx conference and write about science and it’s global importance to society. I also serve as a VP of Communications for Pitt Biomedical Graduate Student Association

In my free time I’m reading lots of books & snacking. I also enjoy hiking and traveling around the country and abroad.
