Professional Experience

After his PhD, Dr. Sergey worked as a staff scientist at P. N. Lebedev Physical Institute of Russian Academy of Sciences (Moscow, Russia). Since then, he was a Max Planck Scholar at Max-Planck-Institute for Solid State Physics (Stuttgart, Germany) and Visiting Scholar of the Swedish Royal Academy of Sciences at Chalmers University of Technology (Goteborg, Sweden). After moving to the United States in 1995, Rashkeev worked at two Universities (Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, Ohio) and Vanderbilt University (Nashville, Tennessee) as research professor of physics before he became a senior scientist at Idaho National Laboratory (INL), US Department of Energy, in 2006. In addition to that, he performed regular work as a reviewer and panelist for the National Science Foundation, he was a consultant for several US and Canadian industrial companies and advisory board member for two large research centers organized by the Department of Energy. Dr. Sergey has authored or co-authored of  ~140+ articles in peer-review research journals, 12 invited book chapters, 12 review articles; 3 US Patent publications and had 70+ invited talks at national and international conferences.
