Hi, I am physicist. I've got my MSc in Physics from Novosibirsk State University in 1977 and PhD in Theoretical and Mathematical Physics from Institute of Nuclear Physics in 1984 (both in Novosibirsk, Russia). Still in Novosibirsk I enjoyed doing theoretical physics for 15 years, but, after moving to Israel in 1992, I've found myself as an industrial physicist and I've worn this hat for all these years.

What a theoretical physicist can do in industry? Computations, algorithm development, data analysis, simulations, optimizations. I like computers and I've been working with them since my university days, so the switch was relatively easy for me. I worked for several high technology companies (see my resume) but decided to start a new life as an independent industrial physicist and founded SPIPS, which stands for Shimon Panfil: Industrial Physics and Simulations.


You are welcome to contact me via e-mail when you need a professional in the following fields:

  • mathematical modelling and computer simulations of physical phenomena;
  • design and implementation of effective computation algorithms;
  • data analysis (including image processing);
  • scientific and engineering programming (C/C++,Tcl/Tk, Fortran, ...);
  • software optimization and performance tuning;
  • financial mathematics;
  • GPGPU programming (CUDA, OpenCL).
I'll be happy to discuss how my skills and experience can help you achieve your goals.

My e-mail is easily combined from my first name dot last name at gmail.com. Please add SPIPS to subject.
