Matematico Heroico

A Professor of Applied Mathematics at the University of Glasgow UK, a Chartered Mathematician (CMath) and a Fellow (FIMA) of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications with research interests in Fluid Mechanics, Magnetohydrodynamics and Mathematical Physiology, see publication list.

I was born in the city of Stara Zagora , Bulgaria (1976). I received my M.Sc. degree in Theoretical Physics from the University of Sofia , Sofia, Bulgaria (2000). I spent four years in Bayreuth, Germany where I was awarded a Dr rer nat doctoral degree from the University of Bayreuth (2004) for my work on dynamo theory of planetary magnetism. My mathematical genealogy may be traced here or here. From July 2004 to September 2006, I worked in Liverpool, UK as a Senior Research Fellow in the Department of Mathematical Sciences of the University of Liverpool researching the propagation of waves in cardiac tissue. In 2006 I joined the School of Mathematics and Statistics of the University of Glasgow where I am now a Professor of Applied Mathematics. In 2012-13 I spent 11 months at Stanford University and UCLA as a Visiting Research Scholar in Solar Physics collaborating with the HMS group. In 2017 I was elected a Fellow of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications and awarded a Chartered Mathematician status.

I like climbing mountains, especially in bad weather. Here is a link to my Munro bagging map.
