Since 2003/2004 Professor of Mathematics and Director for research in bioinformatics, networks and pathways at the Center for the Study of Biological Complexity , Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU). Elected Corresponding Member of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences; elected member of the International Academy of Mathematical Chemistry.
Long time interests in theoretical/mathematical chemistry: Characterization of molecular structure by quantum chemistry, information theory and graph theory. Since 2002 joined the new area of systems biology and computational biology, with a focus on molecular level. Developed the first graduate course in network biology in 2006. Research interest in analyzing and quantifying complexity of networks.
Current Research: Network theory and its biomedical applications, including evolutionary studies, identification of markers and drug candidates, molecular mechanisms of diseases.
