Professor Levitov is a graduate of the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, where he studied symmetry and local order in quasicrystals. He worked a few years at the Landau Institute, spent a year at Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Chimie in Paris, and since 1992 has been on the faculty at MIT in Boston. His research interests within condensed matter theory are very broad and include quantum transport, solid-state quantum computing, physics of cold atoms, quantum noise, and growth and pattern formation.
