Biographical entry Flambaum, Victor V. (1951 - )


20 November 1951
Omsk, Russia


Victor Flambaum is Professor and Head of the Theoretical Physics Department at the University of New South Wales. Much of his early professional life was spent in his home land of Russia at the Novosibirksk University and at Universities and Institutes in the United Sates of America where he held many visiting scientist appointments. Flambaum moved to Australia in 1991 to take up his current post where he and his co-workers have produced important results in atomic physics and nuclear physics, particularly in the area of violation of fundamental symmetries of the nucleus, which have opened up new areas of research. Flambaum has also developed a new statistical theory which is applicable to compound nuclei, complex excited atoms and atomic clusters. Taken in part from the Australian Academy of Science Newsletter, No. 47, May-August 2000.
