Personal profile


Taras Yavors'kii studied physics at and earned PhD from National University of Lviv, Ukraine, where he was developing quantitative theory of critical phenomena in phi-4 field theories with complex symmetry order parameters. He then worked as a research associate and a post-doctoral fellow at Universities in Hanover (Germany), Waterloo (Canada), Mainz (Germany) studying quantum and classical spin models on highly geometrically frustrated lattices. He was also employed as a consultant on high-performance GPU computing in molecular dynamics at the University of Waterloo. He is an author of over 20 publications in peer-reviewed international professional journals garnering over 220 references to his work, including in journals “Science” and “Nature”. In 2013, he was appointed a Lecturerer in Mathematics at Coventry University.

Research Interests

GPU computing; Transport networks; Highly frustrated magnetism

Vision Statement

My expertise is in conceptualization and quantitative description of mechanisms behind emergent, collective behaviors in complex systems of many interacting constituents, such as classical and quantum models of statistical and condensed matter physics with conflicting (frustrated) interactions and disorder. I study such systems by using both analytical and high performance computational methods, in particular, by harnessing computational power of general purpose Graphics Processing Units.
