Andrei Nefiodov

Andrei Nefiodov graduated from Leningrad (now St. Petersburg) State University (Faculty of Physics, Theoretical Physics Department) in 1988 and earned his PhD in theoretical physics from St. Petersburg State University in 1991. Since 1992, he has been working in the Theoretical Physics Division at Petersburg Nuclear Physics Institute. The field of research included the study of structure and dynamics of highly charged ions, both within the framework of QED theory and beyond it, in particular, taking into account the nuclear and weak interactions. In 1997-1998 Andrei was a Honorary Research Fellow by The Royal Society at the University College London in the UK. In 2001-2002 he was Alexander von Humboldt Fellow in the Institute for Theoretical Physics at Dresden University of Technology in Germany. In 2004 Andrei habilitated in Theoretical and Mathematical Physics. Together with Dr. Vladimir Ovsyannikov he suggested novel method for the production of highly charged ions, which was realized in ion sources of the next generation (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Magnetic_Focus_Ion_Source ). Since 2011 he joined Prof. Victor Gorshkov and Dr. Anastassia Makarieva in development of the condensational theory of hurricanes, which represents the physical mechanism of biotic pump theory (see https://bioticregulation.ru/pubs ). Recent activity is focused on the natural ecosystem's control of the water cycle and moisture transport. Andrei Nefiodov has published total more than 70 refereed articles in scientific journals.
