Mariya is a computational condensed matter physicist. She received her Ph.D. degree from Ecole Polytechnique, France, where she was working on the investigation of spectroscopic properties of defects in semiconductors under high pressure. At the Vlcek group, her work focuses on the development of stochastic many-body techniques for electronic structure calculations. She is interested in materials for quantum technologies: defects, low-dimensional heterostructures, and interfaces.
