|Professor Pletneva received her undergraduate education and M.S. degree in Chemistry from the Higher Chemical College of the Russian Academy of Sciences. She obtained her Ph.D. in Inorganic Chemistry in 2001 from Iowa State University. After postdoctoral studies with Professor Amy H. Andreotti at Iowa State University and Professor Harry B. Gray at the California Institute of Technology, she joined the faculty of Dartmouth College in the summer of 2007. Among other honors, Professor Pletneva is the recipient of the Dartmouth College Class of 1962 Faculty Award for Outstanding Teaching and the 2010 NSF CAREER Award.|
