Vladimir Palyulin

Vladimir graduated from Lomonosov Moscow State University in 2007, where he received his PhD degree in 2010 in the field of Polymer Physics, namely he studied thermodynamics of block copolymer systems with complex architectures. His current research interests include various fields of soft matter and polymer physics; he is also actively working on anomalous diffusion and crowding problems.

After defending his PhD Vladimir moved to work on optimisation problems in systems with anomalous diffusion at the Technical University of Munich and University of Potsdam in Germany. Vladimir came back to Polymer Physics, working the last years at the University of Cambridge, UK. His work was focussed there on the prediction of mechanical properties of amorphous polymers from their microscopic structure. Vladimir has authored about 20 papers in peer-reviewed journals including a couple of highly cited review papers and papers in the top journals like PNAS.  During his work in Munich and Cambridge he actively participated in teaching of statistical physics and maths courses.

As a faculty member, Prof Palyulin provides teaching at graduate level, advising student and innovation projects, and conducting application-oriented research.
