2012 – today: Member of the CaLIPSO team: two projects CaLIPSO and PECHE.


  • CaLIPSO: development of the innovative positron emission tomography (PET) detector for the brain and pre-clinical studies. This is an efficient, fast detector with high spatial resolution. It uses the heavy TMBi liquid as a detection media. The detector provides two signals: an optical photon signal and a signal from the ionization produced in TMBi.

  • PECHE: development of the fast light detection technique using Cherenkov crystilline radiator to boost the time-of-flight performance of PET scanners.

Main interest and contributions are:

  • Development of the photon detection techniques  for time-of-flight  PET with coincidence resolving time better than 100 ps.

  • Simulation of the particles detectors and PET scanners using Geant4/Gate software.


2003 – 2016: study of the top quark with the D0 detector

Member of the D0 international collaboration. D0 experiment studies the pp collisions at the center-of-mass energy 1.96 GeV at the Tevatron collider, Fermilab USA. The main contributions to the experiment are:

  • operation of the D0 calorimeter;
  • noise studies and developing of the noise suppression system in the D0 calorimeter;
  • developing of the on-line controls for the calorimeter;
  • muon  identification;
  • calibration of the reconstructed quark jets;
  • developing of the system for the calibration and selection of the detector output data;
  • coordination of the analysis data processing;
  • studies of the top quark 
  • coordination of the top quark activities in the D0 collaboration.

1999 - 2004: Study of the crystal source of the positrons.
