General Info

I obtained my undergraduate degree in physics in 1993 from the Moscow State University and a Ph.D. in physics in 1997 from the California Institute of Technology. After spending 1997-2001 at the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton, I joined the faculty of the California Institute of Technology.

I am a theoretical physicist. In the past I have worked on particle physics, supersymmetric field theory, topological field theory, and string theory. Currently I am interested in mathematical aspects of condensed matter physics, including topological phases of matter, theory of transport, and hydrodynamics.
