Short biography
University Degree in Physics (1987) from St. Petersburg State University. Ph.D. equivalent degree in Polymer Physics (1994) from the Institute of Macromolecular Compounds, Russian Academy of Sciences. In 1996, invited to theInternational Solvay Institutes of Physics and Chemistry in Brussels to study irreversibility and dissipation in quantum systems including the decoherence problem with potential application to quantum information. In January 2005, joined the Centre for Quantum Information and Communication as a postdoctoral fellow.
