Dr Evgueni Goudzovski is a particle physicist, currently working primarily on the NA62 experiment at CERN devoted to studies of ultra-rare kaon decays. He has been data taking coordinator and physics analysis coordinator of several past and current kaon experiments at CERN. He is author of over 60 research papers on rare kaon decays, CP violation, and experimental techniques, and has a citation h-index of 15. Dr Goudzovski was appointed Royal Society Research Fellow and Birmingham Fellow in 2012.
Dr Evgueni Goudzovski obtained his BSc degree in 2000 and MSc degree in 2002, working on antihyperon production at the Excharm experiment at IHEP Protvino, Russia. In 2002, he became a member of the NA48 collaboration at CERN, and has been involved into CERN kaon physics experimental programme since then. His PhD thesis (2006) was devoted to precision searches for direct CP violation in charged kaon decays.
In 2006-2008 he worked as a post-doctoral researcher at Scuola Normale Superiore and INFN in Pisa, Italy. His work was mainly devoted to precision measurements of rare processes and hadronic kaon decays. During this period he became one of the main proponents and the physics analysis coordinator of the first phase of the CERN NA62 experiment.
Dr Goudzovski came to Birmingham in 2008 as a research fellow, joining the Birmingham NA62 research group. After a brief period as a project associate at CERN in 2010, he returned to Birmingham as a Marie Curie research fellow in 2011, and was appointed a Royal Society Research fellow in 2012. He has been lecturing since 2011.
