Alexander S. Rogachev

Alexander Sergeevich Rogachev is Deputy Director of the Institute of Structural Macrokinetics and Materials Science (ISMAN), Russian Academy of Sciences, Chernogolovka, Moscow Region, Russia. He received a PhD in 1986 from the Institute of Chemical Physics Academy of Sciences of the USSR, and a DSc in 1995 from the Institute of Structural Macrokinetics, Russian Academy of Sciences. Since 2006 he has worked at the Institute of Structural Macrokinetics, Russian Academy of Sciences, where he has been head of the Laboratory for Dynamics of Micro-heterogeneous Processes since 1988. Since 2003 he has also been a Professor of the Moscow Institute of Steel and Alloy, Technological University. He serves as Editor-in-Chief of the International Journal of Self-Propagating High Temperature Synthesis. He is member of the World Academy of Ceramics, the International Combustion Institute, Russian Section, and the Scientific Council on Combustion and Explosion, Russian Academy of Sciences. Dr. Rogachev's research interests include dynamics of phase and structure transformations during high-temperature processes in micro-heterogeneous and nano-heterogeneous systems; mechanisms of combustion wave propagation in micro-heterogeneous media and nano-systems; self propagating high temperature synthesis (combustion synthesis) of advanced materials; product structure formation at combustion and thermal explosion conditions; macrokinetics and chemical kinetics of fast-running processes; reaction waves in multilayer thin films; and mechanical activation of heterogeneous reactions.
