Sergei Turovets

Senior Computational Physicist

My current research interests include MRI physics, biomedical engineering and physiological measurements, mathematical modeling and numerical methods in neuroscience and brain imaging, development of the finite difference and finite element methods for solving biologically relevant problems of mathematical physics, in particular, in electrical impedance and diffuse optical tomography. I received the MS degree in Physics from Moscow State University and the PhD degree in Physics from Institute of Physics, Academy of Sciences, Minsk, Belarus.



  • PhD, 1992, Institute of Physics, Academy of Sciences, Minsk, Belarus
  • Diploma, 1983, Moscow State University, Russia

From 1984 to 1999, he was with the Institute of Physics, Academy of Sciences, Minsk, Belarus, where he was engaged in research on nonlinear dynamics in complex systems, including lasers and nonlinear optical devices. Since 2000 to 2003 he worked as a computational scientist in the high tech optoelectronic industry in Silicon Valley, California.

Dr. Turovets is a recipient of Postdoctoral Fellowship Awards from the Royal Society (UK) , DAAD (Germany) and the Ministry of Education and Culture (Spain). He is a member of the Optical Society of America.
