I was awarded my PhD and DSc in Theoretical Solid Mechanics by the Institute for Problems in Mechanics at the Russian Academy of Sciences. I was affiliated with this institution until 2000, when I joined Manchester University. In 2005 I moved to Brunel University where I spent seven years before coming to Keele in 2012. I have also held several visiting positions all over the world, including the University of Alberta, Bordeaux University, City University of Hong-Kong, Technical University of Munich, and Tel-Aviv University.

My research interests lie in the general area of physical applied mathematics, including continuum mechanics, acoustics, asymptotic analysis, and multi-scale modelling. I have co-authored over 100 publications in these areas. Amongst these are 3 books including the advanced research monograph ‘Dynamics of Thin Walled Elastic Bodies’, written in collaboration with L.Kossovich and E.Nolde. I am a member of the editorial boards of 5 journals, such as Mathematics and Mechanics of Solids, and Mechanics of Time Dependent Materials.

Article Eigen-value of a semi-infinite elastic strip (jointly with A.Pichugin and V.Zernov) is a Board Members Favourite in Proc Roy Soc London A (2006-2007); see see review by A. N. Norris.

I have also taken various administrative roles, including Headship of Mathematics Department at Brunel. Currently, I lead the Mathematics Research Centre at Keele.  In addition, I have an experience of managing major international networks involving both teaching-learning and research components, including Erasmus+ program (Azerbaijan, Belorussia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Russia), University of Modena Reggio Emilia (Italy), Anadolu University (Turkey).  I am also an external examiner of BSc and MSc programs at Liverpool University.
