Igor Zozoulenko graduated from Kiev State University in 1983 in General Physics. In 1988 he received a PhD from the Institute of Theoretical Physics, Natl. Acad. Sci. of Ukraine and Kiev State University. His Ph.D. research dealt with theoretical studies of excitation energy transfer in molecular systems and polymers. After graduation he worked as a research fellow at the Institute of Theoretical Physics, Natl. Acad. Sci. of Ukraine.
In 1993 he joined the Norwegian Institute of Technology in Trondheim as a postdoctoral fellow working on quantum transport in semiconductor nanostructures. In 1995 he received a fellowship from The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences and spent two years as postdoctoral fellow in the Theory and Modelling division at the Department of Physics, Linköping University. He was with the Department of Physics until 1999 when he became associate professor with the Department of Science and Technology (ITN) at Campus Norrköping.
Since 2008 he is professor with the same department with research interests focusing on electronic and transport properties of low-dimensional structures and functional plasmonic and photonic devices. In 2013 he joined the Laboratory of Organic Electronics where he is currently a leader of the Theory and modelling group.
Prof. Igor Zozoulenko’s research interests during past years have been focused on simulation and modelling of electronic and ionic transport and electronic structure and morphology of organic material and devices. Currently, the Theory and modelling group consists of four postdoctoral fellows and one PhD student.
Prof. Igor Zozoulenko is also actively involved in teaching. Since 1996 he has been a course leader in eight undergraduate and six Ph.D. courses at Linköping University. In 2005 he was nominated by students for the prize “Gyllene moroten” (the best teacher of Linköping university).
Currently, Igor Zozoulenko serves as Director of graduate studies at ITN, and he is a member of the board for Graduate education at the Technical Faculty of Linköping University.
