Dr. Dimitriiev is a professor of physics at the Institute of Semiconductors Physics at the National

Academy of Sciences in Ukraine. Dr. Dimitriiev obtained his Masters of Science degree in physics in 1987 from Kiev State University specializing in molecular physics and his Ph.D. degree in 1992 from Donetsk State University specializing in solid state physics. Dr. Dimitriiev currently is serving as a Fulbright Scholar at the University of Minnesota Minneapolis. His Dr. Dimitriiev’s research interest includes material science of organic and hybrid heterostructures, molecular electronic and photovoltaics and ecological issues relating to material sciences and molecular electronics. The lecture is open to all interested faculty, staff and students. 

The Outreach Lecturing Fund (OLF) allows Fulbright Visiting Scholars who are currently in the United States to travel to other higher education institutions across the country. Each year some 800 faculty and professionals from around the world receive Fulbright Scholar grants for advanced research and university lecturing. 

The purpose of the OLF is to allow these scholars to share their specific research interests, speak on the history and culture of their home country, exchange ideas with U.S. students, faculty and community organizations, become better acquainted with U.S. higher education, and create linkages between their home and host institutions and CIES.
