Dmytro Vasylyev is currently Research Fellow in the Bogolyubov Institute for Theoretical Physics in Kyiv, Ukraine. He earned his Bachelor of Science at the National University of Kyiv-Mohyla Academy, Ukraine in 2004, and his Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics from the University of Rostock, Germany, in 2009, working with Prof. Werner Vogel. In his thesis work, he investigated the influence of lossy processes on the nonclassical properties of light propagating in semiconductor structures and optical cavities. After completing his Ph.D., Vasylyev accepted a position as Postdoc at the University of Rostock, where he worked for 5 years. He was also the Visiting Researcher in the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light, Germany, and at the University of St. Andrews, Scotland. During that time, he developed the theoretical foundations of quantum communication through atmospheric channels. He focused in particular on the question of which impact has the atmospheric turbulence, atmospheric absorption, and scattering on the degradation of quantum signals and proposed several adaptive and postprocessing techniques for mitigation of these negative influences. His works lead to an understanding that the direct application of classical atmospheric optics models to quantum domain leads to inconsistencies, that, in turn, could be critical by analyzing the security of quantum communication schemes in free-space. His recent studies aim a consistent description of satellite-mediated quantum communication links. Vasylyev has 18 refereed publications, 2 in Physical Review Letters.
