Prof. Volodymyr A. Chernenko graduated Moscow State University in 1975. He has got his PhD degree in Chemical Physics from the same University in 1980. He has 43 years of research experience in centers in Ukraine, Germany, Japan, Italy, United States, France, Switzerland, Australia, Spain, Hong Kong and Russia. He is currently holding a permanent position as Ikerbasque Research Professor at BCMaterials & University of Basque Country.
Professional interest is in solid state physics, physics of phase transitions in solids, magnetism, high pressure physics, functional materials, metallurgy and, in particular, focused on research and development of the multifunctional magnetic shape memory materials, magnetomechanics of martensites, thin films and nanotechnologies of the ferromagnetic martensitic materials.
Author and co-author of 340 original papers in ISI scientific journals and book chapters with about 10000 citations and h-index 48 (Google Scholar). He is author of 14 patents. He is International Fellow Awardee of the Helmholtz Association (Germany) in 2014. He was supervisor of many PhD students. He is world-wide known as one of the founders of the new research area “Ferromagnetic shape memory alloys” being organizer and/or invited speaker of many International conferences and symposia on this subject.
