Since 2014 – Federal expert in a wide rage range of issues relating to physics, applied superconductivity, electrical machinery, sustainable and clean energy.

Main field of scientific and managerial activity at present is elaboration of Conception and Strategy of development of megapolis energetics and implementation of maglev transport technology on the example of commercial project “Petro —Maglev” in Saint-Petersburg.

Personal contribution to the Russian science and innovative activities:
• Numerical implementation of regularization method for solving severely ill-posed problem of computation of synthesis of superconducting maglev systems with predetermined maglev field distribution in the working volume;
• Construction and commercial operation of the world’s first cryoturbogenerator KTG-20 with a capacity of 20 mW with superconducting charge coil;
Establishment of scientific field dealing with a problem of current lead into superconducting apparatus.
• Production of major components, installation and testing of model sample of the cryoturbogenerator with brushless excitation system based on a topological generator;
• Development and complex testing including those in standard operating modes of the installation series in the amount of 100 units of supercinducting topological generators with a wide range of ratings spectrum. In 2004 – 2005 put into operation 4 mini HPP units with 600 kW capacity in the cascades of Sulak Hydropower Plants, Republic of Dagestan.

Since 2014 – Deputy Chief Editor – scientific editor of the scientific journal “Transportation Systems and Technology” www.transsyst.ru.

Awards: Three government awards for honorable service in the Armed Forces of the USSR, Inventor of the USSR insignia, Gold medal of VDNKH for design of superconducting topological generators.
