Victor Ovchinnikov graduated from the Vladimir State University (Russia) in 1979 with degree in electrical engineering. He has been dealing with adaptive systems and computer technique from the very beginning of his scientific work. In 1987, he obtained his Ph.D. degree in microelectronics from the Moscow Aviation Institute. After that, he returned to Vladimir State University where he was employed as an Associate Professor. There, he taught courses in design and fabrication of microelectronic devices. From 1997, he has been working as a Senior Research Scientist at the Center of Micro- and Nanotechnology, Aalto University, Helsinki. He has successfully led Finnish Academia funded research projects and is an author of 60 scientific papers published in journals and conference proceedings as well as 5 USSR patents. He regularly participates in specialized scientific conferences (LDSD, Metamaterials, NSM). Moreover, he is an Advisory Chair of ICQNM Conferences and a Member of the Editorial Board of International Journal on Advances in Systems and Measurements. His main research interests focus on finding the efficient methods of microfabrication and include low-dimensional silicon structures (pillars, nanoclusters), high-impedance surfaces for millimeter wave application, and plasmonics nanostructures for metamaterial and SERS applications.
