Dr. Mryasov is an Associate Professor of Physics and Graduate Advisor of Materials Science and Engineering Tri-Campus Program at the University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa (UAT). From 2001-2009, he was Principal Research Engineer at Seagate Technology Research Center. From 1999-2001 he held joint appointment of Research Engineer-III/Technical Staff at UC Berkeley/Sandia National Laboratories (Livermore). He performed his post-doctoral research at Northwestern university in the group of Professor Arthur Freeman (1994-1999). He received the Ph.D. in Physics and Math from Russian Academy of Sciences in 1993, under the supervision of Prof. A.I. Lichtenstein and Prof. V. I. Gubanov (1989-1993). Dr. Mryasov has been awarded by the Irish Science Foundation with the C. T. Walton Fellowship grant and Technology achievement award from Seagate Technology LLC. Dr. Mryasov has pioneering and innovative contributions in the field of novel CPP-GMR heterostructures with high spin polarization Heusler alloys [1]; transparent conductors [2]; constrained density functional theory (CDFT) for magnetic excitations [3]; theory of magnetic anisotropy energy (MAE) [4,5]; and beyond DFT-LDA theory of metal/insulator interface states [6].
