Prof Miroshnichenko obtained his PhD in 2003 from the Max-Planck Institute for Physics of Complex Systems in Dresden, Germany. In 2004 he moved to Australia to join the Nonlinear Physics Centre at ANU. During that time, he made fundamentally important contributions to the field of photonic crystals and bringing the concept of the Fano resonances to nanophotonics. In 2007 he was awarded by Australian Postdoctoral and in 2011 by Future Fellowships from the Australian Research Council. In 2017 he moved to the University of New South Wales and got the very prestigious UNSW Scientia Fellowship. Prof Miroshnichenko was recognised as Highly Cited Researcher 2019 by Web of Science Group based on exceptional research performance demonstrated by production of multiple highly cited papers. The topics of his research are nonlinear nanophotonics, nonlinear optics, resonant interaction of light with nanoclusters, including optical nanoantennas and metamaterials.
