Biography
Graduated from The Urals State University in 1990 with integrated Bachelor/Master in Physics. Defended PhD in 1998 at P.N.Lebedev Physical Institute. From 1990 to 2000 worked at Pushchino Radio Astronomy Observatory. Was Head of Computing. Then directed the development of HPC and Networking at Pushchino Research Centre of Russian Academy of Sciences in 1995-2000. In 2000-2003 worked in the industry as Co-Director R&D at Omnixmedia GmbH in Germany. From 2003 to 2011, Senior Lecturer/Assistant Professor at the School of Engineering of Auckland University of Technology. From 2011, Associate Professor for HPC at the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (The University of Western Australia).
