Curriculum Vitae:

Born April 23, 1956, Pleven, Bulgaria. M.Sc. Mechanics and Mathematics (1979); Ph.D. Mathematics (1985); Associate Professor (1997); D.Sc. (2001), Full Professor of Mathematical Modeling and Applied Mathematics (2005) – Department of Chemical Engineering (DCE), Faculty of Chemistry, Sofia University, Bulgaria. Five times, he has been visiting professor in the Institute of Fluid Mechanics, University of Erlangen - Nuremberg, Germany. He was also senior researcher in the CRPP, Bordeaux, France, 1999, and in the Laboratory of Ultrastructure Research, NIPS, Okazaki, Japan, 2001. His research interests are in the area of the hydrodynamics of liquid films, drops and bubbles; thermodynamics and kinetics of surfactant adsorption, incl. micellar surfactant solutions; interfacial rheology and bulk rheology of suspensions; evaporation, hydrodynamic instabilities and critical thickness of liquid films; dynamics of flocculation and coalescence in emulsions; electrostatic and hydrodynamic interactions of colloidal particles at fluid phase boundaries and in thin liquid films. So far, he has published 188 research and review papers (cited 4118 times in the scientific literature, h-index 39), and has given 220 presentations at international conferences, including 62 invited lectures and 78 lectures. He was awarded the F. W. Bessel Prize of the Humboldt Foundation (Germany) in 2002 and the Blue Ribbon Medal of the Sofia University "St. Kliment Ohridski" for significant achievements in science (2016).
