Ivan Ivanov received his M.S. degree in mathematics from Sofia University “Kliment Ohridski,” Bulgaria, and his Ph.D. degree in mathematics from the University of South Florida, Tampa, Fla, USA, in 1999. He was a Postdoctoral Mathematics Researcher at Syracuse University from 1999 till 2000 and at Texas A&M University from 2000 till 2003. Dr. Ivanov was a Trainee in the postdoctoral program in bioinformatics at Texas A&M University from 2003 till 2005 and joined the Department of Veterinary Physiology and Pharmacology at the same university as a Clinical Assistant Professor in August 2005. Dr. Ivanov teaches the course “Analysis of genomic signals” at the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, Texas A&M University and at Sofia University, Bulgaria. Dr. Ivanov actively mentors and trains students of all levels at Texas A&M University, Florida A&M University, and Sofia University. His research interests are focused on several key areas of computational biology and toxicology, including (i) system identification and inference from genome-wide data, (ii) model complexity reduction and compression, (iii) control of the dynamical behavior for the purposes of therapeutic intervention, and (iv) design of predictive computational models for cell response to nanomaterial exposure. The interdisciplinary nature of his research has led to the establishment of strong collaborations with researchers from laboratories at US and foreign universities and institutes. Dr. Ivanov’s interdisciplinary collaborations have been recognized by the invitations to join the Intercollegiate Faculty of Toxicology and the Institute for Applied Mathematics and Scientific Computation at Texas A&M University. He was also invited to and joined the Department of Electrical and Computing Engineering as an Adjunct Professor. Dr. Ivanov’s interdisciplinary research has led to the successful applications for funding from the NIH and the Texas NHARP. He is a reviewer for several engineering and bioinformatics journals.
