Sergei Tretiak

Full Professor
The Provost's Office

Sergei Tretiak received his M.S. (highest honors, 1994) from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (Russia) and his Ph.D. (1998) from the University of Rochester (US) where he worked with Prof. Shaul Mukamel. He was then a Director-funded Postdoctoral Fellow in Theoretical Division at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) and became LANL staff scientist in 2001. Since 2006, he is a staff scientist at the Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies (CINT), a DOE user facility at LANL/SNL. He also serves as Adjunct Professor at the University of California, UCSB, Santa Barbara, CA (2015-present) and at Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology, Skoltech, Moscow, Russia (2013-present). He became APS Fellow (2014) and LANL Fellow (2018), and received the LANL Postdoctoral Distinguished Mentor Award (2015) and the LANL Fellow’s Prize for Research (2010). Tretiak has supervised 23 postdoctoral fellows and mentored over 80 undergraduate and graduate students (2001-2018). He has published over 250 scientific publications cited over 13,000 times (h-index=59, WebOfSci)) and has presented more than 250 invited and keynote talks in the US and abroad.
