About Serge Youri Kalmykov

I received the M.Sc. degree in applied mathematics and physics from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (State University) in 1995, and the Ph.D. degree in plasma physics from Joint Institute for High Temperatures, Russian Academy of Sciences, in 2001. From 2001-2006, I held postdoctoral positions in Ecole Polytechnique (Palaiseau, France), Max-Planck Institut fuer Quantenoptik (Garching, Germany), Illinois Institute of Technology (Chicago, IL), and Institute for Fusion Science (IFS) at The University of Texas at Austin. From 2006-2010 I was employed by the IFS as a Research Associate. Since 2010, I have been with the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where I am currently an Associate Research Professor. My research interests are in plasma theory, high-field laser science, advanced accelerator concepts, relativistic nonlinear optics, and plasma-based radiation sources. I am a Senior Member of IEEE and OSA. I have authored and co-authored 40 peer-reviewed papers in the field, and regularly consult experimental groups in plasma simulation and theory. My career goals are developing an independent research program in the field of advanced particle accelerators, high-power laser-plasma interactions, and/or HEDP; creating and maintaining a research group (with significant extramural funding) within a major research university or national laboratory; teaching a modern course of plasma physics with an emphasis on radiation-plasma interaction, including kinetic properties of dense plasmas, AMO effects, and particle trapping and acceleration.
