Professor Stanishevsky graduated from Belarusian State University of Informatics and RadioElectronics and then joined Plasmoteg Engineering Center of the Belarus Academy of Sciences. He was awarded an NRC postdoctoral fellowship to conduct research at PennState on CVD diamond films and later worked as research faculty in the University of Maryland Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC), where he also developed one of the first undergraduate courses in nanoscience. Among other things since joining the UAB Department of Physics, Stanishevsky has provided multiple opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to conduct research abroad under the National Science Foundation-funded IRESMWN, and IREE programs.
