Ilya Kuprov received his Ph.D. degree in physical chemistry from the University of Oxford, UK, in 2005. He was a Junior Research Fellow, Magdalen College, Oxford, UK, in 2006, and a lecturer in physical chemistry, University of Durham, UK, in 2007. He became a Reader in chemical physics, University of Southampton, UK, in 2012. His research interests include theoretical and experimental spin dynamics, spin relaxation theory, and general magnetic resonance, both fundamental and applied to problems of chemistry and biochemistry; application of chemically pumped nuclear cross-relaxation and cross-correlation effects to molecular structure investigation; electron spin resonance and electron spin echo studies of photosynthetic systems, effects of weak magnetic fields on chemical and biochemical reactions, animal magnetoreception, and environmental effects of radiofrequency magnetic fields; computational design of paramagnetic MRI cancer diagnostics agents; and numerically efficient spin dynamics simulation algorithms and their application to molecular structure determination.
