Professor Bezryadin received his Ph.D. in physics (summa cum laude) from Joseph Fourier University (Grenoble, France) in 1995. His thesis research was on superconducting networks in the group of Dr. Bernard Pannetier at CRTBT. Professor Bezryadin received his bachelor's and master's degrees in physics and applied mathematics from the Moscow Institute for Physics and Technology in 1990. Prior to joining the faculty of the Department of Physics at Illinois, Professor Bezryadin held postdoctoral research appointments at the Delft University of Technology and DIMES in The Netherlands and at Harvard University (1997-2000).

Professor Bezryadin is a remarkable experimentalist who explores physics at the nanoscale. He is developing innovative nanofabrication techniques to enable novel investigations of the properties of superconducting systems with dimensions approaching 5 nm—a virtually unexplored size scale at which macroscopic quantum effects have a strong impact on superconducting devices. He has fabricated some of the world's tiniest nanowires, loops, and SQUIDs by using carbon nanotubes as substrates for deposited metallic films. New approaches utilizing DNA templates (instead of carbon nanotubes) and a focused electron beam ""sculpting"" technique are being currently refined in his group.
