Sergei Tretiak received his M.S. degree (highest honors, 1994) from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (Russia), and his Ph.D. degree in 1998 from the University of Rochester where he worked with Professor Shaul Mukamel. Afterwards, he was a director-funded postdoctoral Fellow (1999–2001) and subsequently became a Technical Staff Member (since 2001) at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). Since 2006, he has been a Member of the DOE-funded Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies (CINTs). His research interests include the development of modern computational methods for molecular optical properties; time-dependent density functional theory and semiempirical methods; nonlinear optical response of organic chromophores; adiabatic and nonadiabatic molecular dynamics of the excited states; collective electronic excitations and optical response of confined excitons in conjugated polymers, carbon nanotubes, semiconductor nanoparticles, and molecular aggregates; charge and energy transfer in biological and artificial antenna complexes; ultrafast nonlinear spectroscopy.
