A. Mikelic graduated from the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, University of Zagreb, Croatia and obtained his Ph.D. degree in mathematics in 1983 from the same university. He was awarded the Leverhulm Trust postdoctoral positions at the Imperial College, London and at the University of Sussex in 1986 and 1987. He was awarded the Fulbright and Humboldt scholarships in 1991 and 1992. Since 1992, he has been a Professor of applied mathematics at the Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1, Lyon, France. He became a Full Professor at same university in 2000. He has published more than 120 research papers with many different coauthors. His most quoted works involve results on the derivation, using homogenization, Napier’s slip law for rough surfaces, the interface law by Beavers and Joseph, Biot's poroelasticity equations, and the effective nonlinear filtration laws. Furthermore, he published papers on stochastic homogenization and on the homogenization of the reactive transport equations through porous media and the equations for the multiphase flows. In 1990s, he published much quoted papers in the field of nonsmooth mechanics. His other interests involve equations of statistical hydrodynamics, zero viscosity limits for the Navier-Stokes equations and, more recently, derivation of effective averaged models for blood flows and microcirculation.
