Kostya (Ken) Ostrikov - Biography#


Kostya (Ken) Ostrikov is a CEO Science Leader, Australian Future Fellow of the ARC (Level FT3, Full Professor), CSIRO’s Chief Research Scientist in Plasma- and Nano- Technologies, and a Founding Leader of the Plasma Nanoscience Center Australia (PNCA) at CSIRO Manufacturing Flagship, Professor of Nanotechnology and Molecular Science at the School of Chemistry, Physics and Mechanical Engineering, Faculty of Science and Engineering of Queensland University of Technology, as well as an Honorary/Visiting Professor of Peking University (China), Zhejiang University (China), the University of Sydney, University of Technology Sydney, University of Wollongong (Australia); Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Shanghai Jiaotong University, Jiangnan University (China); Kharkiv National University (Ukraine); Nanyang Technological University (Singapore); and Josef Stefan Institute (Slovenia, EU). He pioneered and developed the Plasma Nanoscience as a distinctive research field [Rev. Mod. Phys. 77, 489 (2005), IF=51.4 (2010), Australia’s only paper in 8 years before publication] and has lead it to recognition as a major advance in physics [Adv. Phys. 62, 113 (2013) (IF=37.0, 2011); Australia’s only 13-th paper in 62 years].

As an established and recognized leader of a large international collaborative network, convenor of annual conferences, and lead editor of special issues in the field, he leads a large international plasma nanoscience community. He is the first recipient of the high-profile 2012 Building Future Award of Germany’s Ministry of Economics, Association of Electronic and Electrotechnical Industries, and the world’s largest Trade Fair Messe Frankfurt in recognition of outstanding achievements and innovations in scientific research that sets a landmark in sustainable development in our society. His achievements include the 3 most prestigious general-field (physics) medals of National Academies of Science of Australia and Ukraine and the Australian Institute of Physics (one of the only two researchers who have been awarded both of the two most prestigious medals in physics [AIP Walter Boas (2010) and AAS Pawsey (2008)] in Australia in last decade), 7 prestigious international fellowships and 12 full professor-level appointments in 6 countries, 3 research monographs, about 470 refereed journal papers (H-index of 55 has been achieved in only 18 career years, which is exceptional as it is 3 times higher than the accepted sign of success [Nature 436, 900 (2005)]) and is higher than his physical age, more than 140 plenary, keynote, and invited talks at international conferences, research training of ~65 researchers with PhD and >92 research students, as well as more than $15M in competitive research funding and more than 250 coauthors/collaborators in last 6 years. Staff, postdocs, and students trained by Ostrikov are well-known and recognized nationally and internationally (e.g., prestigious fellowships, awards, publications, invitations, etc.). His research on nanoscale control of energy and matter for a sustainable future contributes to the solution of the grand challenge of directing energy and matter at the nanoscale, a challenge that is critical for renewable energy and energy-efficient technologies for a sustainable future.
