YURY ILLARIONOV

Associate Professor

Department of Materials Science and Engineering

Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech)

Prof. Yury Illarionov was born in Leningrad (now St-Petersburg) in 1988. He studied solid state physics at Peter the Great St-Petersburg Polytechnic University (Russia), where he received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in 2009 and 2011, respectively. From 2010 to 2012, he studied advanced material science at Grenoble INP (France) and the University of Augsburg (Germany) in frameworks of Functionalized Advanced Materials and Engineering (FAME) Erasmus Mundus program and in September 2012, received a double European M.Sc. degree. In January 2015, he received his Ph.D. in semiconductor physics from Ioffe Institute (Russia), and in December 2015, his second Ph.D.  from TU Wien (Austria). From 2016 to 2022, he worked as a postdoc researcher at the Institute for Microelectronics of TU Wien (Austria), which has been known as a strong TCAD modeling center but, due to Yury’s work, also became recognized for pioneering research on 2D electronics. Prof. Yury Illarionov has already coauthored more than 80 contributions, including papers in top journals like Nature Electronics, Nature Communications, Advanced Materials, and ACS Nano, among others (>25 as the first or corresponding author). In 2020, he received the IEEE Senior Member title and also served as an official Russian delegate for the BRICS Young Scientist Forum. He also has a very broad international collaboration network, which includes top scientists from Russia, China, the USA, Germany, and other countries.

Prof. Yury Illarionov joined SUSTech as a faculty member in April 2023.
