Dr. Vasiliy Fomenko

I performed my undergraduate studies in Moscow, Russia, at the Moscow Engineering Physics Institute, where I received a Diploma, which was approximately equivalent to the Master of Science degree. My research thesis was devoted to an investigation of polymer-membrane systems for CO2 sequestration from gaseous mixtures.

In 1997, I was accepted to the University of Pittsburgh as a graduate student. Under the guidance of Dr. Eric Bourget , I performed my PhD studies, investigating carrier dynamics and surface reconstruction phenomena at semiconductor interfaces using second harmonic generation.

Since my graduation from the University of Pittsburgh in 2003, I had two post-doctoral appointments. One was at the Joint Institute for Laboratory Astrophysics (JILA) in Boulder, Colorado, where I performed research in the area of confocal microscopy of quantum dots. The second post-doctoral appointment was at the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Colorado at Boulder with studies of single-molecule RNA folding dynamics using Fluorescent Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET).

In 2007, I accepted a position as Senior Scientist at Landauer, a leader in radiation monitoring. I have been involved in a variety of projects devoted to utilizing optical materials, optical methods as well as advanced image processing to develop new methods for radiation detection and characterization.
