I am Professor of Physics at the University of Illinois at Chicago. I joined the UIC Physics Department in 2005. Before that, I worked at the Purdue University Physics Department (West Lafayette, IN) and in the Laboratory for High Energy Physics at Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (Dubna, Russia). I graduated from Ivanovo State University, where I majored in theoretical physics and applied computing for high-energy physics.

I am specializing in the High Energy Nuclear Physics. I take part in experimental studies of phase structure of  hadronic matter with two international collaboration, STAR and CMS. The STAR Experiment at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) is located at the Brookhaven National Laboratory (BNL) in Upton, NY, RHIC; the CMS experiment at Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is located at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland. Together with many physicists from all over the world we study matter under extreme temperatures and densities in order to better understand how our Universe might have looked like right after its creation.
