Dr. Kairat Ismailov is NUZYP Math Teaching Fellow.
Kairat received his degree in Nuclear Physics from Kazakh State National University in 1996. In 1999 he began working at the Institute of Nuclear Physics as an engineer and was promoted to the position of Senior Research Assistant. In 2005, he entered the Tokyo Institute of Technology (TIT) and in received his PhD in Nuclear Engineering in 2011 specializing in the transmutation of nuclear wastes. During his studies in Japan, Kairat worked at TIT and JAEA (Japan Atomic Energy Agency) as a research assistant.
Kairat started working at the Center for Preparatory Studies at Nazarbayev University as Physics Teaching Fellow in 2011. In 2018 he joined NUZYP (Pre-Master’s Program) where he teaches Linear Algebra and Statistics courses.
In cooperation with researchers at NU’s School of Engineering Kairat began researching Li-ion batteries. Since 2018 he has been involved in the Ministry of Education and Science’s program titled “Innovative Materials and Systems for Energy Conversion and Storage”. His current research topic is the computational modelling of the thermal management of the Li-ion battery pack at low and high temperatures.
