 About Me

B.S., 1997, theoretical physics, Kiev State University, Kiev, Ukraine
M.S., 2005, physics, Florida State University
Ph.D., 2007, physics, Florida State University
Alexei Bazavov is theoretical particle physicist specializing in study of strongly coupled theories, in particular, Quantum Chromodynamics. He received his Ph.D. in 2007 from Florida State University. He then was a research associate at the University of Arizona in 20072010, Brookhaven National Laboratory 20102013 and jointly appointed at the University of California, Riverside and University of Iowa in 20132016. Alexei is currently an assistant professor at the Michigan State University, jointly appointed at the Department of Computational Mathematics, Science and Engineering and Department of Physics and Astronomy.
