I graduated from the Nanotechnology faculty of St. Petersburg Academic University and moved to France, where I did my Ph.D. on optics of semiconductor nanowires at INSA-Lyon. Next, I’ve been working in Nomura group on phononic crystals, and currently, I am a project associate professor at the University of Tokyo. My research is focused on phonon and heat transport in nanostructures. Specifically, I study ballistic thermal conduction in nanowires and phononic crystals for applications in thermoelectrics and microelectronics.
Investigation of ballistic conduction of phonons and heat in semiconductors at nanoscale.
Improving the thermoelectric performance of silicon-based devices using nanofabrication.
In this project, I develop a new concept of heat manipulation based on particle properties of phonons"
Theoretical and experimental studies of coherent heat conduction in phononic crystals.
