Welcome! Graduated from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology and belonging to Landau School of theoretical physics  I am always trying to follow the highest research and teaching standards,  keeping the delicate balance between fundamental and applied research, collaboration with experimentalists, teaching, supervision of PhD students and management of research projects. International collaborations, mobility, organization of the dissemination and training events, coordination of European actions is another important part of my activity. Highly believing in the necessity of high-level research in academia, I apply all my knowledge and expertise to select the quality, competence and long-range research strategy as decisive criteria of scientific policy

Integrating negative capacitance into the field-effect transistors (FET) promises to break fundamental limits of power dissipation known as Boltzmann tyranny. However, realization of the stable static negative capacitance in the non-transient regime without hysteresis remains a daunting task. Here we put forth an ingenious design for the ferroelectric domain-based FET with the stable reversible static negative capacitance...    Nature partner journal: Computational Materials, 52 (2022)
