Pawel Hawrylak - Curriculum Vitae
Dr. Pawel Hawrylak received PhD in Condensed Matter Theory from the
University of Kentucky, Lexington, Ky, USA, in 1984, did
postdoctoral research at Brown University, Providence, RI, USA,
and joined the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) in 1987.
He is currently Principal Research Officer and Leader of the Quantum
Theory Group at the Institute for Microstructural Sciences (IMS) as
well as Adjunct Professor of Physics at the University of Ottawa
and a member of the Canadian Institute for Advanced
Research (CIAR) Nanoelectronics and Photonics Programme.
His interests in last 20 years were focused on theoretical and computational nanoscience, and in particular on the electronic and optical properties of correlated electrons in semiconductor and graphene nanostructures for quantum information, nano-electronics, nano-spintronics, and nano-photonics.
Dr. Hawrylak is a co-author of a book, Quantum Dots, published by Springer-Verlag (1998), and is author and co-author of over 200 publications and reviews in condensed matter physics and nanoscience. He coordinated IMS Nano-photonics and Quantum Information programs and holds a patent on coded qubits. In 1996 Dr. Hawrylak was elected Fellow of the American Physical Society, in 1999 he received the Humboldt Research Award, in 2002 he received the Canadian Association of Physicists' Brockhouse Medal for outstanding contributions to condensed matter physics, and in 2003 NRC Outstanding Research Award for the development of "single spin transistor".
In 2005 Dr. Hawrylak was appointed Professor Titular of Physical Sciences by the President of Poland. In 2006 he was appointed Fellow of the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research and elected Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada. In 2010 Dr. Hawrylak was appointed Honorary Professor, Wroclaw University of Technology. Dr. Hawrylak serves as an Associate Editor of Solid State Communications (2005-), Canadian Journal of Physics (2002-2008), and a member of the Editorial Board of Physica E: low dimensional structures (1996-). Dr.Hawrylak was elected member (2002), Secretary (2005) and Vice-Chair (2008) of International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP) Commission on Semiconductors. Between 2006-2008 he served as a member of the IUPAP Nanoscience Working Group.
