Taras Vasiliev

Professor: Ivan Oseledets

Taras has physical experimental background and soil-modeling experience. He has graduated from the Department of Physics at Lomonosov Moscow State University. His Master thesis addressed the experimental measurements of the polaization observables in dd->pT reaction at RIKEN energies. Then, Taras continued working as a researcher in the spin-program at Nuclotron Energies (LNS RIKEN-JINR) of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) in Dubna, Russia. In the framework of collaboration with CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, Taras participated in cosmic-ray tests of the Muon Chambers of Endcap Muon systems (ME1/1) produced at JINR, and the SPS beam-time calibration of Hadron Calorimeter  stations prototypes for the Compact Muon Solenoid experiment (CMS) at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). For the Compressed Baryonic Matter experiment at GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung in Darmstadt, Germany, Taras performed the High-pT pion identification with RICH subsystem in heavy-ion collisions. For the NICA project at Dubna, Taras performed layout simulations for the silicon tracking system with fixed target subsystem (BM@N project) in order to measure the strangeness production.​ For the past two years, Taras was actively involved in soils systems modeling and developing integrated architecture “field to laboratory” for soil field and experimental data mining and analysis system, currently being tested and implemented in Dokuchaev Soil Science Institute.
