Curriculum vitae

Sergey V. Krivovichev obtained his BA, MS and PhD degrees from St. Petersburg State University, where he holds a Chair of Full Professor of the Department of Crystallography, Institute of Earth Sciences, since 2005. In 1999-2004, he worked in various research institutions abroad, including University of Notre Dame (U.S.), Kiel University (Germany), Innsbruck University (Austria) and University of Berne (Switzerland). In 2008-2010 he was an invited Professor at Lille University (France). His main scientific interests include mineralogy, crystallography, inorganic crystal chemistry, nuclear chemistry and complexity theory.

Sergey Krivovichev served as a President of International Mineralogical Association (IMA) in 2014-2016 and currently is a Vice-President of Russian Mineralogical Society. For his contributions to mineralogy, he received several national and international awards, including European Mineralogical Union (EMU) Medal in Research Excellence, President of Russian Federation Young Scientist Award in Science and Technology and Alferov Foundation Award and Golden Medal. In 2015, he was a George Brown Lecturer of the Mineralogical Society of Great Britain and Ireland. Krivovichev has a mineral krivovichevite hamed in his honor. In 2016, he was elected to the Russian Academy of Sciences as a Corresponding Member and received honorary professorship from the East China University of Technology.

Sergey Krivovichev is a Chief Editor of the European Journal of Mineralogy and serves on the editorial boards of several Russian and international journals in the fields of mineralogy, crystallography and inorganic chemistry. He published and edited six books, and authored more than 20 book chapters and over 350 papers in international journals. He contributed to the discovery of more than 80 new mineral species, provided crystal-structure determinations for more than 120 minerals and was first to synthesize uranium-based oxide nanotubules. His recent achievements include development of theory of complexity of crystal structures, which he applies to the study of mineral evolution throughout the history of the Universe.
