Pavel Sorokin Wins the Scopus Award Russia 2015

Pavel Sorokin, Senior Researcher of the “Inorganic Nanomaterial” Laboratory, Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences on “Condensed Matter Physics,” received the Scopus Award Russia 2015 in the “Young Scientist” category.

The International Scopus Award is an objective measure of the scientist’s achievements. The contribution of the individual author into the development of national science is assessed by the number of published scientific articles and citations in international journals and excludes subjective assessment. The number of published articles is being indexed through the Scopus database.

The thirty-two-year-old scientist from MIS&S has published more than fifty papers in international peer-reviewed journals such as Nano Letters, ACS Nano, and Nature Communications. Pavel Sorokin engaged in both basic and applied research, for example, the modeling of a new generation of composites reinforced with different nanostructures. Research interests are one-dimensional and two-dimensional nanostructures, surface physics, and composite materials.

Pavel’s Supervisor, Dmitry Golberg, professor andhead of the laboratory, is from the National Institute of Materials Science in Tsukuba, Japan. He is  one of the world's leading scientists in the field of Nanotechnology. He congratulated the student on the well-deserved award, praising the scientific activities of young scientists. “Pavel Sorokin, one of the youngest Doctors of Sciences in Russia, is very motivated, well organized and a scientifically erudite scholar who has gained global recognition in the world scientific community. He has very bright prospects which have deep roots in his past and present research. Pavel is  one of the most productive and efficient members of our “Inorganic Nanomaterials” laboratory at MIS&S.”

The Scopus Award was established by publisher Elsevier in 2004 and is given annually to an outstanding scientist for his or her contributions to the development of science in different countries around the world. For several years, the Scopus Award Russia has been presented in Russia, where it has received the support of leading universities, academics, and scientific agencies.
