Personal profile


I am a Reader in Physics in the School of Engineering and Computing at the University of the West of Scotland (UWS).  Before joining UWS in May 2009, I have worked  as a Research Associate for 3.5 years in the School of Mathematics at the University of Bristol.  Previously, from September 2001 to December 2005, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow in theoretical physics in the group of Prof Donald W. L. Sprung at McMaster University, Canada.

I obtained my BSc and MSc degrees from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT), Russia in 1994 and in 1996 respectively; and my PhD degree from the University of Windsor, Canada in 2001.

My research interests are in the area of theoretical optics and photonics. I am currently supervising two PhD students. I am a member of the Editorial Board of Optical and Quantum Electronics Journal and a frequent reviewer for Europhysics Letters (EPL), Journal of Optics, Journal of the Optical Society of America B (JOSA B), Optics Express, Optics Communications, Canadian Journal of Physics, etc.

Area of academic expertise - outline

Photonic Crystals, Metamaterials, Thin Films, Superlattices

Theory of Microresonators and Microlasers

Semiclassical Methods in Optics and Quantum Mechanics

Target collaborative organisations

I am collaborating with Prof H. Waalkens from the University of Groningen (Netherlands) and Dr M. Sieber from the University of Bristol (UK) on the development of theoretical and numerical methods applicable to the description of light behaviour in microlasers and microresonators.

I am also collaborating with Prof D. Sprung from McMaster University (Canada) and Prof J. Martorell from the University of Barcelona (Spain) on the theory of light propagation in photonic crystals.
