Yaroslav Tserkovnyak

Yaroslav Tserkovnyak completed his Ph.D. in physics at Harvard University in 2003. Following a stint as a Harvard Junior Fellow, he has been on the faculty at the University of California, Los Angeles, since 2006. His main interests are the theory of quantum transport and nonequilibrium dynamics in spintronic and low-dimensional systems.
