I was born in Moscow, USSR in 1959, got my University Diploma in Physics from Lomonosov Moscow State University, Low Temperature Division (MGU) in 1983, got my PhD in Physics of Semiconductors and Dielectrics from Institute of Radio Engineering and Electronics (USSR Academy of Sciences) in 1990. The title of my thesis was "Mesoscopic effects in hopping conductance of GaAs field-effect transistor" (advisor Dr.Sc. Alex Savchenko)
I spent a year in England working with, alas, late Alex Savchenko at the University of Exeter.
Since 1994 I live and work in the USA. In 2010, 2012, 2013, and 2015 I worked in Marc Sanquer group with Xavier Jehl at Institut Nanosciences et Cryogenie in Grenoble, France.
From 2008 my title is Research Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Notre Dame., PI and co-PI in several research projects. I work with several research groups led by Greg Snider, Wolfgang Porod, Gary Bernstein and Patrick Fay
My topics of research are experimental studies of nanostructures and nanodevices with main focus on experimental single electronics and nanomagnetics. This include various applications of single-electron devices (sensors, memories and logic), the use of SETs for material characterization; experimental studies of quantum-dot cellular automata (electronic, magnetic, and molecular); nanothermoelectrics and antenna-coupled nanothermoelectric devices and low energy (adiabatic reversible) computation.
