Dr. Andrei Kholkin is one of the world leaders in the characterization and imaging of functional materials with the emphasis on ferroelectrics and multiferroics. He received his PhD degree in Solid State Physics from the A. F. Ioffe Physical-Technical Institute (St. Petersburg, Russia). Afterwards he held research positions in Leibniz Institute for Solid State and Materials Research (Germany), Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (Switzerland) and Rutgers University (USA). He is currently research coordinator and head of the advanced microscopy of functional materials laboratory of the CICECO-Aveiro Institute of Materials of the University of Aveiro (Portugal). His group develops multifunctional materials (including ferroelectrics, multiferroics and polar biomaterials) and scanning probe microscopy techniques for their study. He is a co-author of about 500 technical papers in this area including multiple reviews and book chapters. He was a coordinator of three European projects on functional materials and currently serves as an Associate Editor-in-Chief for the IEEE Transactions on Ultrasonics, Ferroelectrics and Frequency Control (TUFFC). He is a member of editorial boards of several scientific journals and serves in advisory boards of international conferences on ferroelectrics. He is a member of the Ferroelectric Committee of IEEE and was a recipient of the “Excellency” award from the Portuguese Foundation for Science and Technology. Dr. Kholkin is IEEE Fellow for his achievements in the development of electromechanical characterization tools and got a Ferroelectrics Recognition award from IEEE.
