Victor V. Zhorin began his work as a theoretical physicist
and an associate professor working on developing first principles quantum-mechanics foundations
for a new class of infrared laser materials with mixed type of chemical bonding.
Those materials were proven to be of importance for applications in laser communication, femtosecond and microchip laser design.
He was invited by the Argonne National Laboratory (DOE) to work on estimation of long-term radiation damage
effects in high-level nuclear waste forms.
Research showed that self-healing processes in solid-state matrix
partially offset the structural damage around radioactive centers.
Recently, he is involved in economics research to analyze the role of financial
systems in developing economies by using
advanced structural models of economic growth with financial sector and occupation choice.
