Summary

Sergei gained his BA in Mathematics in 1996 from Cambridge University and his PhD on Conic Structures in Differential Geometry in 2000, from the University of Glasgow. He started his research in solar physics by working on solar feature recognition algorithms for the European Grid of Solar Observations, moving to local helioseismology research at the University of Sheffield with Prof M J Thompson in 2005. Sergei joined the Solar Physics group at Mullard Space Science Laboratory, UCL, in 2009 where he worked on the detection and physics of sun-quakes. He was appointed as a lecturer at Hull in 2013.
