Alexander Zelikovsky received the PhD degree in computer science from the Institute of Mathematics of the Belorussian Academy of Sciences in Minsk, Belarus, in 1989 and worked at the Institute of Mathematics in Kishinev, Moldova (1989-1995). Between 1992 and 1995, he visited Bonn University and the Institut fur Informatik in Saarbruken, Germany. Dr. Zelikovsky was a research scientist at the University of Virginia (1995-1997) and a postdoctoral scholar at the University of California at Los Angeles (1997-1998). He is a professor in the Computer Science Department at Georgia State University, which he joined in 1999. He is the author of more than 160 refereed publications. Dr. Zelikovsky’s research interests include bioinformatics, discrete and approximation algorithms, combinatorial optimization, VLSI physical layout design, and ad hoc wireless networks. He is a founding cochair of the ACIS International Workshop on Self-Assembling Wireless Networks and the International Workshop on Bioinformatics Research and Applications. He is program committee cochair of the 2007 and 2008 International Symposium on Bioinformatics Research and Applications. He also serves on the editorial board of the International Journal of Bioinformatics Research and Applications and is a guest editor for the LNCS Transactions on Computational Systems Biology, the IEEE Transactions on Nanobiotechnology, the IEEE/ACM Transactions on Computational Biology and Bioinformatics and the Journal of Universal Computer Science. Dr. Zelikovsky received the SIAM Outstanding Paper Prize in 2007, the best paper award at the joint Asia-South Pacific Design Automation/VLSI Design Conferences in 2003 and the best poster awards at the Annual BACUS Symposium on Photomask Technology and the Fifth Georgia Tech International Conference on Bioinformatics in 2005.
