Viktor Mokeev

Victor Mokeev attended the Physics Department at Moscow State University (Russia) and graduated in 1978 with the Master of Science degree and with Ph.D. in Nuclear Physics in 1981. He was awarded the Doctor of Science degree from the Russian Federation Government in 2009. Dr. Mokeev joined Jefferson Lab in 2003 as staff Scientist. He developed the only available approach worldwide for the extraction of γvNN* couplings from exclusive π+π-p electroproduction data on protons, which allowed the extraction of electrocouplings of the P11(1440) and D13(1520) resonances from this exclusive channel for the first time. Preliminary results on electrocouplings of prominent N* states with masses up to 1.8 GeV have become available. Also, evidence for a new state with JP=3/2+ at a mass of 1720 MeV was observed. Dr. Mokeev is spokesperson for the experiment on N* structure studies at high photon virtuality, using the CLAS12 detector. He organizes and supervises research activities of several visiting scientists from MSU. Dr. Mokeev served in the editorial board for the 2013 review paper "Studies of Nucleon Resonance Structure in Exclusive Meson Electroproduction", as well as in several organizing committees for international Workshops on N* Physics. He is the organizer of joint meetings between the JLab Theory Center and JLab experimentalists with the goal to develop a QCD-based theoretical interpretation of the results on γvNN* electrocouplings.
