- Ph.D., Thermal Physics & Nuclear Power Installations, Moscow Engineering Physics Institute (Technical University), Moscow, Russia, 1997.
- B.Sc. & M.Sc., Magna Cum Laude, Engineering Physics, Moscow Engineering Physics Institute (Technical University), Moscow, Russia, 1983.
- Magnet Science & Technology: mostly Large Scale Application of Superconductivity (LTS and HTS superconducting magnets), and also resistive dc and pulse magnets: magnet design and design optimizing, theoretical analysis and complex computer simulation, particularly, through the finite element and finite difference methods (quench & quench protection, normal zone propagation, stability margins, 2D & 3D static and transient electromagnetic, thermal, complex thermo-hydraulic and stress analyses, magnetic field calculations, current power lead design study & optimization, heat transfer, fluid mechanics, other related problems), applied mathematics & numerical methods; favorite software for computer simulation & analysis: ANSYS (with APDL & Workbench), Fortran, MATLAB, Vector Fields, Origin.
- Joined the NHMFL in December of 1999 as an Assistant Scientist; Scholar/Scientist (Research Faculty III) since August 01, 2010; worked on design and design optimization, including stress, electromagmetic and thermal analyses, of a variety of pulse high field magnets (for the Los Alamos National Lab: 55T, 60T, 65T, 75T, 100T, "quick cool" pulsed magnets, Repetitively Pulsed Magnet); was/is involved, as a magnet analyst and designer, in a number of projects on innovative superconducting magnet R&D such as the 900 MHz Ultra-wide Bore NMR Magnet, the Compact Sweeper Magnet for NSCL, the Series-Connected Hybrid magnets, 45T Hybrid Magnet for Nijmegen, NHMFL 32T HTS/LTS all-superconducting user magnet, other advanced HTS magnets, tilted/canted coil magnets. The international level of integrity, competition and expertise in quench protection, current power leads engineering (all kinds), thermal, thermo-hydraulic, electromagnetic, structural mechanical and quench analyses, design and design optimization of up-to-date superconducting, hybrid, and resistive magnet systems.
