MPHY 542 (main office)

MPHY B30 (aux. location)


Aleksei Zheltikov received his PhD, as well as his Doctor of Science degree from M.V. Lomonosov Moscow State University in 1990 and 1999, respectively. He became a full professor at M.V. Lomonosov Moscow State University in 2000. Since 2010, he is a professor at Texas A&M University. He is also the head of Advanced Photonics international laboratory at the Russian Quantum Center since 2012 and the head of Neurophotonics Laboratory at Kurchatov Institute Russian Research Center since 2010. His research is focused on ultrafast nonlinear optics and biophotonics. Author of more than 600 publications in peer-reviewed journals. The winner of the Russian Federation State Prize for young researchers (1997), Lamb Award for achievements in quantum electronics (2010), Shuvalov Prize for research at Moscow State University (2001), and Kurchatov Prize for achievements in neurophotonics (2014).
