Synopsis: I was born in Khmelnitsky, USSR in 1979. After completing the Phys. Math. class in Chernogolvka in 1996 I studied Mathematics at Moscow State University. In 2004 I finished my PhD (Kand. Nauk.) under supervision of Robert Minlos. My thesis concerns applications of Functional Analysis and Catastrophe Theory in statistical physics, in particular in the description of properties of Gibbs fields. After defense of my thesis I took a decision to study a new area from the beginning enlarging my scientific background and accept the invitation of Alexander Plakhov to work on quantum analogue of Newton's minimal resistance problems. This led me to University of Aveiro where I was studying direct scattering problems and derivation of mathematical models of propagation of sound. Since 2009 I have a synergistic collaboration with Boris Vainberg. In 2011 Andreas Kirsch asked me to study the theory of Interior Transmission Eigenvalues and it marks the moment I turned from direct scattering problems to inverse scattering problems. I was fortunate to collaborate with Roman Novikov, Armin Lechleiter, Brian Sleeman, and others. Since 2013 I hold a position of Principal Researcher at University of Aveiro.
