Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Full Professor

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 years 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.

DAAD Scholarship holder in 1997, 2003, University of Wuppertal, Germany, a visiting researcher in 2001, the University of Lille, France in 2005, University of Oulu, Finland, Visiting Professor 2001, University of Okayama, Japan.Included in the collection of bibliographic Who is Who in the World 2006 (23rd ed), Who is Who in the Science and Engineering 2005-2006 (8th ed), 2006-2007 (9th ed).
