Leonid Tsybeskov, PhD, is a professor in the department of electrical and computer engineering at New Jersey Institute of Technology. For the last 20 years, his research has been focused on Si and SiGe semiconductor nanostructures.
He was a research staff member at Physics Research Institute and a scientist at the Laboratory for Non-Crystalline Solids in Odessa, Ukraine. In 1991 he moved to the United States and became a post-doctoral fellow, research professor and director of the Nanoscale Silicon Research Initiative at the University of Rochester in Rochester, NY.
During 1999 Tsybeskov was a visiting research fellow at the Technical University of Munich in Munich, Germany. In 2001, he accepted a position as associate professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at NJIT; he became a professor of Electrical Engineering and Materials Science in 2007.
Tsybeskov is the author of more than 130 publications, several US patents, books and book chapters; he is a Principal Guest Editor for the Materials Research Society Bulletin and Proceedings of the IEEE. He is a Fellow of the German Academic Exchange Service and the American Physical Society. In 2009 and 2010 he received Hewlett-Packard Laboratory Innovation Research Awards.
Tsybeskov received a PhD in applied physics in 1986 from the Odessa Mechnikov University, Ukraine (former Soviet Union).
