Graduated from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (state University). Worked in Research stations (branches) of the Joint Institute of High Temperatures of RAS in Andijan and Bishkek (Frunze), and since 2004 in the Research Station of RAS in Bishkek City, Kyrgyzstan. Since 2008 – he worked at IMGG FEB RAS. Scientific research is devoted to the behavior of energy-saturated systems, including their stability and nonlinear dynamics. Such systems include both current-carrying plasma in thermonuclear magnetic traps (the subject of the candidate's thesis, 1984) and loaded geomaterials and rock massifs in seismogenerating zones. Thesis "Respons" for the degree of Doctor of Sciences, Physics and-Mathematics in the field “Geophysics, geophysical methods of mineral prospecting” was defended in 2013.
Author/co-author of more than 150 scientific publications.
By order of the FASO Russia, 7 December 2015 appointed Director of the IMGG FEB RAS for the period until 7 December 2020 by the results of the director elections of the labor collective of the Institute.
