Milan Begliarbekov, Ph.D., was named Technical Cleanroom Manager of the ASRC in April 2014. In this role, he works closely with CUNY and external researchers to develop and implement proper cleanroom fabrication and characterization protocols, and serves as the point of contact for users while they are working in the ASRC NanoFab.

Dr. Begliarbekov, who’s academic and research background, is in photonics and quantum transport, worked as a postdoctoral researcher in Prof. Lia Krusin’s group at The City College of New York prior to joining the ASRC. In his previous position he was responsible for the micro- and nano-fabrication and testing of photonic and electronic devices based on topological insulators.

Dr. Begliarbekov earned a BA in Literature, a BS in Physics, and a Ph. D. in Physics from Stevens Institute of Technology. His doctoral research involved the design, fabrication, and testing of graphene-based devices in Prof. Stefan Strauf’s group. In addition to nanofabrication, Dr. Begliarbekov’s interests include philosophy of science, philosophy of language, and poetry.
