Michael Feiginov has received M.Sc. degree in physics and electrical engineering from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (Russia) in 1994 and Ph.D. in physics of semiconductors and dielectrics from the Institute of Radio-Engineering and Electronics (IREE), Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS), Moscow, Russia in 1999.
From 1994 to 2000 he was working at IREE RAS first as Junior Scientist and later becoming Senior Scientist.

In 2001 he has joined the Technical University of Chemnitz (Germany) and the same year he was awarded Sofja Kovalevskaja Prize by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation, Germany. In 2002 he has joined the Technical University of Darmstadt (Germany) as Senior Scientist, were he was heading a THz research group for the subsequent 11 years.

In 2013 he has moved to Japan, were he was working at the Tokyo Institute of Technology for a year and later he has joined the Frontier Research Centre of Canon Inc., also in Tokyo. In 2016 he was appointed as Professor of high-frequency and THz electronics at the Technical University of Vienna (Austria).
