Pavel Korzhavyi is a professor in Materials Technology, with expertise in modeling disordered crystals and their thermodynamic and kinetic properties, starting from first principles of quantum mechanics. This theoretical modeling is applied to materials of industrial relevance, e.g. metals and ceramics at elevated temperatures. Information about completed and ongoing projects can be found on the website of the Unit of Properties.
Since 2018, Pavel Korzhavyi is KTH's official representative in the Knowledge and Innovation Community RawMaterials at the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT RawMaterials) and in the European Raw Materials Alliance (ERMA). He is the leader of ExpSkills-REM project on Expanding Knowledge and Skills in Rare Earth Permanent Magnets Value Chain, financed by the EIT RawMaterials co-funded by the European Union. Korzhavyi is a member of the advisory editorial board of the Journal of Nuclear Materials.
