About myself

I am a graduate student at the Condensed Matter Theory group. I work with Prof. Patrick Lee on the physics of spin liquids. Before coming to MIT, I attended the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT) in Russia. I graduated with M.S. degree in Physics and Applied Mathematics in 2009. During my Master's studies I worked on the fluctuational Nernst effect in superconductors under the supervision of DPhil M. Skvortsov. I earned my B.S. degree in 2007 from MIPT as well. I was born in Kyiv, Ukraine.


My research interests lie in the area of strongly correlated systems, in particular, the physics of spin liquids. I am also interested in nonequilibrium phenomena, and mesoscopic physics.


On this webpage you can find a list of my publications, and recent talks. The teaching section is under construction and will include presentations and other resources I used as a teaching assistant at MIT. The links section is a collection of useful resources. Finally, personal section includes links to my photographs.
