Dr. Predrag Krstic is a Research Professor at the Institute for Advanced Computational
Science, an adjunct professor in the Department of Materials Science and Chemical
Engineering of Stony Brook University and in the Department of Physics and Astronomy
at the University of Tennessee, and is the founder and owner of the TheoretiK consulting.
He has worked in the Physics Division at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in the Theoretical
Atomic Physics program since 1995, where he retired as a member of the senior research
and development staff and project manager. He obtained his Ph.D. at CC of CUNY in
1982 on the theory of multiphoton processes, and he received his BSC and MSC in technical
physics/data processing and in technical plasma physics from the University of Belgrade.
His research covers a wide range of fields in theoretical atomic physics, plasma physics
and nuclear fusion, computational physics and chemistry, plasma-surface interactions,
molecular electronics, and bionanotechnology. His work has been disseminated in more
than 220 papers in peer-reviewed journals, in several patents, in more than 120 talks
at scientific conferences and seminars, and in a number of international atomic and
material databases. He is a contributor to book chapters, an editor of a number of
conference proceedings, a PI and Co-PI on many grants with DOE, NIH, NSF, and IAEA,
a consultant for the International Atomic Energy Agency, an elected Fellow of the
American Physical Society, and an organizer and co-organizer for various international
workshops and conferences.
