I graduated from the Department of Physics of the Novosibirsk University, Russia in 1982 and received my Ph.D. degree in Theoretical and Mathematical Physics from the Institute of Nuclear Physics, Novosibirsk, Russia in 1986. From 1992 to 1998 I worked in the Institute for Theoretical Physics I, Heinrich-Heine University Duesseldorf, Germany; first as a Humboldt Fellow and then within the collaborative projects with Deutsche Telekom.I joined the Photonics Research Group in the School of Engineering and Applied Science, Aston University in 1998. During last two decades I have been working on various problems of nonlinear science, including soliton theory, self-focusing of light beams, discrete nonlinear systems, and nonlinear fibre optics. My recent research has been shifted towards the high-speed optical communications, nonlinear photonic devices, Raman-based technologies, and ultra-long fibre lasers. Since 2005, I hold the Royal Society_Wolfson_Research_Merit Award.

Professor Sergei Turitsyn is (or has formerly been) affiliated with Aston Institute of Photonic Technologies and Aston University.
