Evgeny Kuznetsov, a Research Engineer VI of the Center for Space Plasma and Aeronomic Research (CSPAR) received his Radio engineering Master degree from the National Research University of Moscow, Russia in 1988. Early carrier starts at the Moscow State University and includes involvement in designs of readout electronics for high energy physics experiments at particle accelerator in Protvino, Russia and high altitude mountain station Aragatz in Armenia. Next 10 years Evgeny spent working as a visiting researcher at the Deutsches Electronen Synchrotron (DESY) designing of a slow control system for the experiment ZEUS and supporting operation of the front end electronics of the Hadron Electron Separator. At 2001 Evgeny was employed by the UAH. He designed front-end electronics for several ground based, balloon and space born instruments for astrophysics research. He designed readout electronics for charge detector of the high altitude balloon experiment ATIC and supported four flight campaigns in Antarctica. Recent projects are Super-Pressure Balloon-2 for Extreme Universe Space Observatory ( EUSO-SPB2), scheduled for launch from New Zealand in 2023, front-end design of the Advanced Neutron Spectrometer(ANS), which is in operation on ISS from November 2017 and neutron counter instrument for Lunar Lander.
