Assistant Professor, Department of Applied Sciences and Mathematics, College of Technology and Innovation [August 2008 - present]
Dr. Sukharev received his Master?s Degree in Theoretical Physics from the Moscow Engineering Physics Institute, Moscow, Russia, in 1997. In 2000 he completed and defended his Ph.D. thesis in Laser Physics at the Department of High-Power Lasers in the General Physics Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow, Russia. From 1998 to 2001 he worked as a research assistant at the Fiber Optics Research Center, Moscow, Russia, performing numerical modeling of electromagnetic field propagation in optical fiber lines of various topologies. In 2001 he received The French Ministry of Research Postdoctoral Fellowship and joined the research group of Professor Annick Suzor-Weiner at the Laboratory of Molecular Photophysics in the University of Paris South, Orsay, France. During this appointment he was involved in the research of optimal and coherent control of atoms and molecules in strong laser fields. In summer of 2003 he joined the research group of Professor Tamar Seideman at the Department of Chemistry, Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois as a postdoctoral fellow performing simulations of optical properties of classical and quantum systems in strong external electromagnetic fields using high performance computing facilities. He joined Arizona State University as an assistant professor of physics in August 2008.
