Profile Summary

ST has extensive research experience in the area of semiconductor nanostructures modelling, optoelectronic devices design and theoretical solid state physics. His resent work is aimed at understanding of electronic and optical properties as well as the radiative and nonradiative (Auger and phonon related) processes in the semiconductor quantum dots based 3rd generation solar cell devices. His interests incude theoretical EXAFS spectroscopy and the description of exited states in semiconductor and oxide materials from the ab initio time dependent density functional theory. ST published more than 170 scientific peer-review papers, 6 book chapters, and has given more than 60 invited and contributing talks on the major international conferences (Hirsch number = 30). He is the Chairmain of IoP Semiconductor Physics Group, Member of IoP (MInsP), Chairman of of the IoP's "Theory, Modelling and Computational Methods for Semiconductors" conference series, member of scientific committee of IEEE's "Numerical Simulation of the Optoelectronic Devices," and EU Photovoltaic Technical Conference, and board member of the UK's CECAM Hartree node at the STFC Daresbury Laboratory. ST is expert in use of supercomputers in quantum mechanical description of materials and analysis and theoretical interpretation of the experimental results obtained on the semiconductor nanostructures.
