Contact Nikolai V Slavine


Dr. Slavine is a theoretical physicist. He received his M.S. in theoretical and experimental physics from the Polytechnic University of Tomsk in 1975 and completed his Ph.D. in high energy theoretical physics in 1996 at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) in Dubna. His thesis topic was the use of quark-gluon string model as an approach for describing multiparticle processes in high energy hadron-nucleus interaction.

Research Interest

Dr. Slavine was recruited to the faculty of the Laboratory of High Energy Physics at the JINR as Research Scientist and was quickly promoted to Senior Research Scientist by Highest Scientific Attestation Commission of Russia in 1997. While at JINR his research focus shifted to developing Monte Carlo algorithms and theoretical approaches for  high energy ion-ion collisions. He has also been an active participant of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) International experiments ALICE and CMS in CERN, Geneva during 1989-1999. As a collaborator within these experiments, he took part in work on the ALICE Letter of Intent and Project in general and his results were included in final documents of ALICE experiment. Dr. Slavine headed a small team of investigators who developed particles generator for nucleus-nucleus collisions.
