Alexander Kazakov is currently a Young Doctor (adjunkt) at the International Centre for Interfacing Magnetism and Superconductivity with Topological Matter – MagTop, ON6.2 of the Institute of Physics Polish Academy of Sciences. He had graduated at the 2009 at the Faculty of Physics, Lomonosov Moscow State University, Russia. He defended a PhD degree there in 2012. Before joining a MagTop in 2017, he was a postdoc at the Purdue University, USA.
His current research interests focuses on the exploring magnetotransport signatures of the topological phase in the topological crystalline insulators and interfacing them with superconductivity or magnetism. He is co-author of 31 peer-review research articles and 1 book chapter. According to WoS, he was cited > 450 times resulting in the h-index of 12. A. Kazakov presented 2 invited talks, 5 contributed talks and 12 posters, two of which won best poster awards in 2012 and 2022.
In 2012 his research won the competition of young talented MSU scholars. In 2017, he was recognized for his outstanding contribution in reviewing for the Journal of Magnetism and Magnetic Materials (JMMM). He also was a co-chair of the Focused Expert Meeting on Interfacing Magnetism and Superconductivity with Topological Matter organized in Warsaw, Poland in 2023.
