Vladimir Skokov

Assistant Professor

Riddick Hall 400E


Dr. Skokov joined the Physics department as an Assistant professor and Riken – Brookhaven National Laboratory (RBRC) fellow in the fall of 2018. Dr. Skokov got his PhD in Joint Institute for Nuclear Researchers in Dubna, Russia Federation. He then held postdoctoral positions at GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung, Darmstadt, Germany, and Brookhaven National Laboratory.     

Area(s) of Expertise

Dr. Vladimir Skokov is a theoretical physicist specializing in high energy nuclear physics. His primary research interests are Quantum Chromodynamics in extreme conditions, including hight temperature, density or/and magnetic field. Additionally, Dr. Skokov studies the nuclear structure and nuclear wave functions at high energies. Recent experiment and advances in theory suggest that, at high energies, every hadron, including proton, neutron and nucleus appear as dense “walls” of gluons, creating what might be among the strongest (chromo)electric and magnetic fields in nature. Studying this novel form of matter, the so-called color glass condensate, will help better understand non-linear dynamics of quantum-chromodynamics.
