Yury A. Kazansky is a Doctor of Science in Physics and Mathematics (1978), Professor (1985),
Academician of the International Higher Education Academy of Sciences (1994), Honored
Worker of Science and Engineering (1995). Born in Saint-Petersburg on 18.10.1930, he took a
degree in Physics and Engineering at the Moscow Engineering Physics Institute (now the
National Nuclear Research University MEPhI) in 1954.
In 1954 – 1985 Yury A. Kazansky worked at SSC RF IPPE. His research interests centered on
small-scale radiation shielding for submarines, physics and engineering of fast neutron reactors
(experimental and physics research of reactor cores and their mock-ups, the nuclear fuel cycle,
and, in particular, the problems of transmutation, nuclear reactor kinetics and dynamics).
In 1985 – 2001 Yury A. Kazansky worked as Rector of the Obninsk Institue for Nuclear Power
Since 2001 Yury A. Kazansky has worked as Professor of the Reactor Design and Engineering
Department at the Institute for Nuclear Power Engineering, NNRU MEPhI.
At present Yury A. Kazansky is Editor-in Chief of the journal and member of the Editorial Board
of the Independent Journal for Nuclear Engineering Kerntechnic. He is Chairman of the
Dissertation Council of the Institute for Nuclear Power Engineering, NNRU MEPhI, member of
the SSC RF IPPE Dissertation Council, Presidium member of the Russian Nuclear Society.
Yury A. Kazansky was awarded an order and several medals for his pioneering work on
submarines and for his computational and experimental work on fast neutron reactors.
