Brief Bio



Dr. Vadim M. Uritsky received his Ph.D. in Space Physics and Geophysics from St. Petersburg State University, Russia in 1998. In 1999-2001, he held a postdoctoral research position at NASA / Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, MD. In 2005, Dr. Uritsky defended his post-doctorate habilitation thesis and was granted the title of Doktor Nauk (Grand Ph.D.), the highest academic qualification in Russian Federation. Since 2006, Dr. Uritsky was a Senior Research Scientist and an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy of the University of Calgary, Canada. In 2006 - 2011, Dr. Uritsky was a Senior Research Scientist and an Adjunct Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy of the University of Calgary, Canada. In the fall 2011, he became a Research Associate at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (Greenbelt, MD), affiliated by the Institute for Astrophysics & Computational Sciences (IACS) in the Dept. of Physics of the Catholic University of America. Beginning September, 2013, Dr. Uritsky is an Associate Professor in the CUA's Physics Department.


Dr. Uritsky is a recipient of several professional awards, including the NRC Resident Research Associateship Award from the U.S. National Academies and the Leonhard Euler research scholarship from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), and a NASA/GSFC HSD Peer Award. Dr. Uritsky is an expert reviewer for major scientific journals and funding agencies. His research has been funded by the Russian Foundation for Basic Research, the European Union's INTAS program, the U.S. National Research Council, NASA science programs, Canadian Space Agency, and Canada Foundation for Innovation.
