Kateryna Lemishko obtained her undergraduate and master's degrees in Chemistry at V.N. Karazin Kharkiv National University (Ukraine) in 2011 and 2012 respectively. In 2014, she obtained a joint European master's degree in Theoretical Chemistry and Computational Modeling at the Autonomous University of Madrid (Spain) and the University of Perugia (Italy) under the Erasmus Mundus program.

In 2020, Kateryna Lemishko completed her PhD in Biophysics at the Autonomous University of Madrid. Throughout her PhD research project carried out at the IMDEA Nanoscience Institute (Spain), she used Optical Tweezers to study at the single-molecule level the activity of the proteins involved in human mitochondrial DNA replication, as well as to study the dynamics of individual synthetic molecular shuttles under force. Kateryna Lemishko joined the Department of Physics at King’s College London as a postdoctoral researcher in November 2020.
