I am currently an Associate Professor of Applied Mathematics with a joint appointment at the Neuroscience Institute at Georgia State University. I am also an associate member of the Center for Nonlinear Science at Georgia Institute of Technology.

I received a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from the University of Nizhny Novgorod (former Gorky), Russia in 2000, under the direction of Professor Leonid P. Shilnikov.

Before coming to Georgia State in 2006, I completed a five-year postdoc at the Laboratory of Nonlinear Systems at Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne ( École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne).

My reseach interests lie in dynamical systems and their applications in biology, neuroscience, and engineering. Primarily, I develop a high-dimensional mathematical approach to interconnected dynamical systems and apply rigorous mathematical techniques to investigate the interplay between network structure and overall network dynamics, in view of its role in information processing, synchronization and pattern formation.

I serve as an Associate Editor of two major applied dynamical systems journals such as International J. Bifurcation and Chaos (term 2012-2014) and IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems I: Regular Papers (term 2012-2014).

I also served two terms as an Associate Editor of IEEE Transactions on Circuits II (terms: 2008-2009 and 2010-2011). I also am on the Editorial Board of Int. Journal Dynamics of Continuous, Discrete & Impulsive Systems. Series B: Applications and Algorithms , Journal of Nonlinear Systems and Applications (JNSA), and IEICE journal "Nonlinear Theory and Its Applications (NOLTA)".

My research is supported by the National Science Foundation (2010-2013 grant: DMS-1009744).

There are PhD student positions available in my group. Highly motivated students interested in applied dynamical systems and networks are welcome to apply by e-mail. Funding is also available for undergraduate students.
