I obtained my PhD degrees from Belarusian State University (BSU) and Northern Illinois University (NIU). I
worked in BSU's non-linear physics research group on
solitary wave dynamics in classical field theory, primordial topological defects and NLSE optical systems. I then moved to
Fermi National Laboratory and joined
beam dynamics group
at Northern Illinois
University (NIU). While at NIU, I was involved in variety of Accelerator Physics problems: electron beam phase-space shaping, THz radiation generation and space-charge algorithms.

I am getting constantly energized by the Nature and people surrounding me and I am always searching for new projects and challenges!

My present work is focused on electron beam dynamics and X-ray Free Electron Lasers. Below is a short list of my interests. Please pay a visit to my Online Physics Seminars project!

- Free electron lasers
- Advanced electron beam phase-space manipulations
- Computational geometry
- Nonlinear dynamics
- Classical Field Theory, Chaos theory
