Dr Andrey Miroshnichenko obtained his PhD in 2003 from the Max-Planck Institute for Physics of Complex Systems in Dresden, Germany. In 2004 he moved to Australia to join the Nonlinear Physics Centre at ANU. During this time Dr. Miroshnichenko made fundamentally important contributions to the field of photonic crystals and bringing the concept of the Fano resonances to photonics. In 2007 Dr. Miroshnichenko was awarded by APD Fellowship from the Australian Research Council. It allowed him to initiate the research on a new class of tunable photonic structures infiltrated with liquid crystals. Later, in 2011 he was awarded by Future Fellowship from the Australian Research Council. During this period he pioneered the research of high-index dielectric nanoparticles in the visible range, including one of the first demonstrations of the optically induced magnetic response in silicon nanoparticles. The current topics of his research are nonlinear nanophotonics, topologiccal photonics, and resonant interaction of light with nanoclusters, including optical nanoantennas and metamaterials.
