Prof. Dr. Mikhail V. Avdeev was born in Penza, April 14, 1972. In 1995 he graduated from the Moscow Engineering Physics Institute (MEPhI) majoring in solid state physics and received his Ph.D. (2002) and D.Sc.(2012) from the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR), Dubna, Russia. His research interests cover various areas of structural research by applying neutron scattering methods including small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) from complex multicomponent systems (magnetic fluids, nanocarbon materials, biological solutions), neutron reflectometry (NR) from liquid-containing interfaces (adsorption of nanoparticles on solids from colloidal solutions, electrochemical interfaces), and development of neutron scattering experiment design (SANS and NR instruments at the IBR-2 pulsed reactor, JINR, Dubna). At present, he is a senior researcher, head of the Neutron Optics Sector of the Frank Laboratory of Neutron Physics at JINR. Dr. Avdeev is the author of more than 140 publications and several lecture courses on applications of neutrons in Moscow State University, St.-Petersburg State University and State University ‘Dubna’.
