Dushko received his PhD in the Department of Physics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2014, United States, defending a thesis titled “Transport and thermodynamic properties of iron-based superconductors” under the supervision of Prof. Maxim G Vavilov. After, he was a postdoctoral researcher in the Materials Theory Division at Uppsala University, Sweden. Working in the group of Prof. Annica Black-Schaffer until 2017, his work was centered around silicene heterostuctures with proximity induced superconductivity as viable platforms that can host Majorana fermions as well as odd-frequency superconductivity. Working with Prof. Johan Nilsson until 2019, he worked on novel and alternative approaches to strongly interacting electrons, focusing on the Hubbard model as a prototypical test-bed.
Currently, he is working on Dynamic Quantum Matter, with main focus on superconducting systems. His broad interests continue to be aspects of the role of various kinds disorder and coexistence of phases in novel unconventional superconducting materials, strongly-correlated electron systems, especially in their relation to signatures in quantum transport and response.
