Research Assistant Professor, Department of Engineering Physics, AFIT Appointment Date: 2019 (AFIT/ENP); MS, Quantum Chemistry, St. Petersburg State University, 1992; PhD, Theoretical Physics, St. Petersburg State University, 1996; PhD, Quantum Chemistry, , Iowa State University, 2002. Dr. Pak’s research interests include the theory of quantization, topological quantum computing and quantum theory of multi-component systems. Of particular interest is the development of new methods to accurately describe matter-antimatter interactions, and specifically positron annihilation in complex multi-electron environment. New research interests include modelling of Majorana states for topological quantum computation and development of theoretical methods to accurately predict temperature dependent short lifetime beta decay and electron capture decay at temperatures attained during nuclear explosions.
