Vladimir Leonidovich Kauts was born on September 11, 1964 in Podolsk, Moscow Region, Russia. He is a Russian physicist, Candidate of Physical and Mathematical Sciences. In 1987 he graduated from the National Research Nuclear University MEPhI (Moscow Engineering Physics Institute) with a degree in Theoretical Nuclear Physics. From 1987 to 1991 Vladimir Leonidovich worked as an engineer and a junior research fellow at Photonuclear Laboratory of the Institute for Nuclear Research of Russian Academy of Sciences.
From 1991 to 1994 he was doing his postgraduate studies at Lebedev Physical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences (LPI RAS). In 1995 Vladimir Leonidovich defended his thesis for the degree of a Candidate of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, his subject being 'Positronium Atom in Astrophysical Conditions'. His scientific supervisor was Professor Vladimir V. Burdyuzha.
Since 1995 Vladimir Leonidovich has been working as a research fellow in the Department of Theoretical Astrophysics of the Astro Space Center at Lebedev Physical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
Since 2011 Vladimir Kauts has been the Associate Professor of the Department of Physics at Bauman Moscow State Technical University. He is the deputy dean of the Faculty of Fundamental Sciences, the Head of the research department of the Faculty of Fundamental Sciences at BMSTU.
Vladimir Leonidovich Kauts is involved in the space projects 'Radio Astron', 'Millimetron' of the State Space Corporation ROSCOSMOS, his subject is 'Precision Gravity Experiments'. The projects are being carried out in cooperation with Lebedev Physical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences and Lomonosov Moscow State University. Within the scope of this research, Vladimir Leonidovich explores the possibility of experimental study of some anomalous phenomena observed in the solar system, as well as the experimental testing of the general theory of relativity. Moreover, he takes an active interest in cosmological subjects related to accretive processes in the early Universe, he is engaged at the joint work with Lomonosov Moscow State University on the research into physical processes in the inner regions of neutron stars.
Vladimir Kauts is an expert in the field of relativistic astrophysics, cosmology. He actively participates in scientific seminars held in Moscow and St. Petersburg.
He published more than 70 scientific papers.
He is the coordinator of fundamental research programs of the Russian Academy of Sciences in priority areas in the Astrophysical Center of the FIAN. He performs research on grants from the Russian Foundation for Basic Research and the Russian Science Foundation.
