He was born November 20, 1947 in Kharkiv. He graduated from the School of Radiophysics of the A.G. Gorky Kharkov state university (KSU), specialty "Radiophysics and Electronics" in 1970. In 1982 he defended his Ph.D. thesis "Submillimeter rotational spectra of some polyatomic molecules," in 2007
his doctoral thesis "Millimeter and infrared spectra of molecules in the interacting vibrational states».
In 1970-1973 years he worked as an engineer, and in 1973-1986
Senior Research Fellow Research Department of A.G. Gorky
KharkovState University. Since 1986
Associate Professor, since
2008 to the present time – Professor of Department of Quantum
Radiophysics of the V.N. Karazin Kharkiv National University
(KNU). Scientific direction - molecular spectroscopy.
The main scientific achievements belong such as: the development and application of methods for solving the inverse problem of spectroscopy for different types of molecules which are interacting states, the construction of effective Hamiltonians of the reduced molecules in the interacting vibrational states, the identification of rotational laser emission lines of polyatomic molecules.
