Alexey A. Petrov0000-0002-4945-4463
Alexey A. Petrov was born in 1971 in St. Petersburg, Russia. He received his Diploma (Summa Cum Laude) in physics at St. Petersburg Polytechnic University in 1993. He obtained his Ph.D. degree in physics from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst in 1997, where he worked on theoretical aspects of nonleptonic decays of heavy hadrons. In the same year, he joined Johns Hopkins University as a Postdoctoral Fellow, and in 2000 he moved to Cornell University to work as a Research Associate. His main research interests include theoretical analysis of electroweak interactions, CP-violation, QCD, and heavy flavor physics. In 2001, Alexey was appointed as an Assistant Professor of physics by Wayne State University, where he has since built a research group addressing a wide array of issues in theoretical high energy physics. In 2006, he was tenured and promoted to an Associate Professor. He has authored numerous research papers, and coorganized several research conferences. He is the recipient of the 2002 Frontier Science Golden Award from INFN (Frascati), the 2004 WSU College of Science Teaching Award, the 2005 National Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER Award, the 2006 WSU Academy of Scholars' Outstanding Junior Faculty Award, and the 2007 WSU Outstanding Student Organization Advisor Award for his work with WSU Society of Physics Students.
