Personal profile


Alexey Veryaskin born in Tashkent, Uzbekistan (a former USSR Republic), in 1951, PhD, is the Director and Founder of Trinity Research Labs, an independent R&D laboratory based at the School of Physics, Mathematics and Computing of the University of Western Australia (UWA). He received his MSc degree in electronic engineering in 1973 and PhD in Theoretical and Mathematical Physics in 1982. In his early career, he spent 12 years as a research fellow at the Sternberg State Astronomical Institute of the Moscow State University (the Faculty of Physics) specialising in precise gravity measurements. He was also specialising in Superconducting Quantum Interference Devices (SQUIDs) applied to gravimetry and gravity gradiometry. In 1991, he was invited to join a team of researchers at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow (Scotland, UK) where he was working on a superconducting gravity gradiometer and some aspects of the Satellite Test of Equivalence Principle (STEP), a European space mission. In 1995 he moved to New Zealand where he patented a Direct String Gravity Gradiometer, a technology that attracted a significant investment either from the private sector or various institutions and government agencies across the globe. He also invented a Direct String Magnetic Gradiometer technology and an Extremely Low Frequency Interferometric System (ELFISTM), which is a new type of electromagnetic gradiometer. Prof Veryaskin moved permanently to Perth (Western Australia) in 2005, and has been working since on various applications of gravity, magnetic, and electromagnetic gradiometry. He is a New Zealand Citizen since 1999, and an Australian Citizen since 2012 (a recipient of Australian Distinguished Talent Permanent Residence Visa in 2008).
