Evgheni Strelcov

Evgheni Strelcov is a UMD Postdoctoral Researcher in the Nanoscale Processes and Measurements Group in the Nanoscale Device Characterization Division. He received B.S. and M.S. degrees in Inorganic Chemistry from Moldova State University, Moldova, and a Ph.D. in Applied Physics from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale. His research interests include: advanced scanning probe microscopy; probing ionic transport and concurrent electrochemical and structural transformations in complex oxides; nanostructure-based metal-oxide gas sensors; nanostructure growth; complex compounds of 3d and 4f elements. Evgheni is working with Nikolai Zhitenev on developing AFM and EBIC methods of probing charge transport in electrochemically-active, memristive and photovoltaic materials.
