Andriy Voronov made his M.S. thesis and Ph.D. degree at Lviv Polytechnic National University in Ukraine. His postdoctoral research stays were at the Institute Charles Sadron in Strasbourg, France and University of Ulm, Germany. His following research in Bayreuth University, Germany, where he worked as an Alexander von Humboldt Fellow (AvH Fellowship, 2000–2001, and long-term cooperation AvH Fellowship, 2001–2003), was focused on the investigations of microphase separation of thin triblock copolymer films. In 2003, Voronov moved to Institute of Particle Technology at the Friedrich-Alexander University, Erlangen-Nuremberg. He spent 4 years in Erlangen as a Staff Scientist. His research activities were focused on nanoparticles' synthesis, stabilization, and structure formation. His research team has been able to synthesize a novel class of polymeric stabilizers that work both in polar and nonpolar environments. Dr. Voronov's primary research focus has been in polymer science, with well-documented years of experience in synthesis, characterization, and self-assembly of polymers and polymer-related materials, including responsive polymer materials. He joined Coatings and Polymeric Materials Department at North Dakota State University in the fall of 2007.
