Professor Victor M. Yakovenko
Yakovenko, Ph.D. is Professor of Physics at the University of
Maryland. His research group is Condensed
Matter Theory. He is Fellow of the Joint Quantum Institute (JQI) and
Member of the Center for Nanophysics
and Advanced Materials (CNAM).
Victor coauthored Classical Econophysics. His research interests include:
- Unconventional superconductors: quasi-one-dimensional, organic, triplet, high-Tc,…
- Andreev bound states in superconductors
- Strongly correlated materials close to a metal-insulator transition: heavy-fermions, two-dimensional electron gas, He-3 films, …
- Physical effects of high magnetic fields, the quantum Hall effect
- Econophysics: Applications of statistical physics to economics and finance
- Photovoltaic conversion of solar energy
Victor earned his M.S. in Physics at the Moscow Physical-Technical Institute in 1984. He earned his Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics at the Landau Institute for Theoretical Physics, Moscow in 1987.
