She then pursued her studies at the Institute of Chemical Science and Engineering at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (Switzerland), where she completed her Ph.D. in Electrochemical Engineering under the supervision of Prof. Christos Comninellis in 2005. During her Ph.D. she spent several months in the laboratory of Prof. Costas Vayenas at the University of Patras (Greece). She became a NSERC post-doctoral fellow in 2005 and later a research associate with the National Research Council Canada, Institute for Chemical Process and Environmental Technology. Professor Baranova’s research there was focused on nanosized electrocatalytic materials for Direct Methanol Fuel Cells (DMFC). She subsequently worked as a senior scientist at Abbott Point of Care on the project related to the biosensors. She joined the University of Ottawa as an Assistant Professor in August 2008. She was promoted to Associate Professor with tenure in July 2013 and to Full Professor in May 2017.
