Dr. Vadim Nikolayev graduated from the Faculty of Radio-Physics of Kiev University (Ukraine, ex-USSR at the time) in 1985 and received his Ph.D. degree in Physics in 1989 from the same university. He was a staff researcher at the Institute for Theoretical Physics in Kiev in 1988-1999. He took visiting positions in France and USA (SPEC/CEA/Saclay, 1995-1996, DRFMC/CEA/Grenoble 1997-1998 and Physics Department of the University of New Orleans, USA, 1998-1999). Since 1999 he works as a staff researcher at the French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission (CEA), at the Laboratory of low temperatures (SBT) until 2013 and in the Laboratory of Condensed Matter Physics (SPEC) since 2013.
As a member of the Team of supercritical fluids for environment, materials and space (ESEME) created jointly by CEA, CNRS and ESPCI (1999-2013), he was based at several laboratories: SBT at Grenoble (1999-2000), ICMCB/CNRS at Bordeaux (2000-2004), PMMH/ESPCI at Paris (2004-2013).
He has defended his habilitation thesis in 2005. He is currently based at SPEC/IRAMIS/CEA/Saclay. He served as a member of the scientific committee of the French-German program COMPERE (2012-2016) that deals with the behavior of cryogenic liquid fuel in the reservoirs of the space vehicles.
He is a co-organizer of the forthcoming International Symposium on Oscillating/Pulsating Heat Pipes, Daejeon, Korea, September 25-28, 2019.
