|Dr. Alexey V. Akimov Will Deliver an Invited Talk at ICNS8.|
Alexey V. Akimov was born in Bryansk oblast, Russia. He received his Diploma in Chemistry in 2007 from Chemistry Department of the M. V. Lomonosov Moscow State University, Moscow, Russia, under joint supervision of Prof. Alexander Nemukhin (MSU, Russia) and Prof. Anatoly Kolomeisky (Rice University, U.S.A.). He obtained his Ph.D. in Chemistry under Prof. Anatoly Kolomeisky from Rice University, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry in 2011. In 2012 he started his postdoctoral appointment in Prof. Oleg Prezhdo group at University of Rochester, Rochester, NY. In the period of 2012-2014 he worked as a postdoctoral research associate in a joint program between the Brookhaven National Laboratory, Department of Chemistry (Muckerman group) and the University of Rochester (Prezhdo group). In 2014 he moved to the University of Southern California, Chemistry Department together with the Prezhdo group. In 2015 he joined the Chemistry Department at University at Buffalo, SUNY as an Assistant Professor.
Dr. Akimov's research is focused on semiclassical and quantum-classical methodologies for accurate and efficient simulation of quantum dynamics in abstract models and in large-scale atomistic systems. Applied scientific interests include photoinduced processes of charge and energy transfer in solar energy materials and in functional nanomaterials.
