Nadezhda Bulgakova

Prof. Nadezhda M. Bulgakova received her Ph.D. degree in Physics and Mathematics from the Institute of Thermophysics (ITP) SB RAS in 1985 for studies of impacts of space flights and transport aircrafts on chemical content and radiation absorption in ionosphere and stratosphere. In 90th she focused on theoretical studies of laser-matter interaction and from 1997 she leads the Group of Laser Ablation Theory in the ITP. Prof. Bulgakova has published more than 150 journal papers, conference proceedings and book chapters in English and Russian. In 2010 she received a Marie Curie International Incoming Fellowship and in 2011 she joined the Optoelectronics Research Centre at the University of Southampton for two years. In 2012 Prof. Bulgakova was awarded the Diploma Di Merito and Golden Medal of the European Scientific-Industrial Chamber in recognition of contribution to the theory of laser-matter interaction. Since 2014, she works at the HiLASE Centre of the Institute of Physics AS CR, Czech Republic. Her research interests include processes in solid targets absorbing laser radiation; dynamics of plasma plumes during pulsed laser ablation of solids; cluster formation in free gaseous jets and laser-ablation plumes; plasma-chemical reactions.
