Sergei Manzhos received an M.S. degree in radio physics and electronics from Kharkiv National University, Ukraine, in 1999 and a Ph.D. degree in chemistry from Queen’s University, Canada, in 2004, under the supervision of Hans-Peter Loock. He served as a Postdoctoral Fellow with Tucker Carrington at the Department of Chemistry, University of Montreal, from 2005 till 2007, and as Assistant Professor at the University of Tokyo, Japan, from 2008 till 2012. Since 2012, he has been working as an Assistant Professor at the Department of Mechanical Engineering of the National University of Singapore. His current research interests include the theory of photoelectrochemical cells and of metal ion batteries, and theoretical spectroscopy and theory of molecule surface reactions. His areas of expertise also include ab initio methods, molecular dynamics; molecular potential energy surface reconstruction; non spectral methods for solving the Schrodinger equation, non-adiabatic processes, photodissociation dynamics; molecular algebra; neural networks; multidimensional data analysis and approximation, interpolation; image processing, pattern recognition, feature extraction, modelling of (chaotic) dynamical systems, their use for secure communications, and modeling of nonlinear processes in electrodynamics.
