Dr. Maximov received an M.Sc. degree in Engineering Physics from the Moscow Engineering Physics Insitute in 1986 and a Ph.D. degree in Theoretical and Mathematical Physics from the Lebedev Physics Institute of the Academy of Sciences of USSR in 1990. Between 1989 and 2001, Dr. Maximov worked as a scientist at the Lebedev Physics Institute, had a fellowship of DAAD at Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany, and worked as a research associate at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Canada. In 2001–2002, he worked as a visiting scientist at École Polytechnique, Palaiseau, France. Dr. Maximov has worked at the Unversity of Rochester since 2002 as a scientist at LLE and as an adjunct professor at the Department of Mechanical Engineering since 2003. His research interests include studies of waves and instabilities in plasmas, computational physics including fluid and kinetic modeling, heat transport, and nonlinear propagation of laser beams in inertial confinement fusion plasmas.
