Personal Statement:

My main field of research activity is synthesis of new inorganic materials with important physical properties. In the 1990th years we discovered different new superconducting materials, and among them the Hg-based superconducting mixed cuprates family, which still holds the record for the superconducting transition temperature. The insights on inorganic materials design developed by us and strengthened by modern synthetic approaches are now intensively used to streamline the research in the following fields today: a) new electrode materials for electrochemical production of aluminum which is supported by the Joint Company RUSAL; b) new electrode materials for Li-ion batteries with enhanced energy and power densities; c) new cathode materials for solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) based on transition metal anion-deficient perovskites.
