    About the Contributors


    Konstantin K. Likharev received the Candidate (Ph.D.) degree in Physics from Moscow State University, Russia in 1969, and the habilitation degree of Doctor of Sciences from the Higher Attestation Committee of the U.S.S.R. in 1979. From 1969 to 1988 Dr. Likharev was a Staff Scientist at Moscow State University, and from 1989 to 1991 the Head of the Laboratory for Cryoelectronics of that university. In 1991 he assumed a Professorship at Stony Brook University (Distinguished Professor 2002-2017, John Toll Professor 2017-2020, Distinguished Professor Emeritus since September 2020). During his research career, Dr. Likharev worked in the fields of nonlinear classical and dissipative quantum dynamics, and solid-state physics and electronics, notably including superconductor electronics and nanoelectronics. His current research interests are focused on the nanoelectronic implementation of high-performance neuromorphic networks. Dr. Likharev is an author of more than 350 publications, including 80+ review papers and book chapters, 2 monographs, 8 textbooks, and several patents. Dr. Likharev is a Fellow of the APS and the IEEE.
