Alexander Pisarchik is a Research Professor and Head of Dynamics Group at Center for Research Optics in Leon, Mexico. He graduated from Physics Department of the Belarus State University, Minsk, Belarus, in 1976, and he obtained his Ph.D. degree in physics and mathematics in 1990 from Institute of Physics of the Belarus Academy of Science, Minsk, Belarus. From 1989 to 1992, Professor Pisarchik served as Vice Director of Molecular Kinetics Laboratory at the Institute of Physics. The main topic of his research is chaos theory and synchronization of dynamical systems with applications to optics, electronics, biology and medicine, multistability, chaotic communication, and chaotic cryptography. Dr. Pisarchik edited the book Recent Advances in Laser Dynamics: Control and Synchronization and was an Invited Editor of several special volumes of scientific journals and conference proceedings. From 2009 to 2011, he served as a Member of Evaluation Commission of the National System of Researchers of the National Council for Science and Technology. He has been honored with several awards including the First Prize from the Belarus Academy of Science and the Second Prize from the Institute of Physics for his studies on nonlinear dynamics of complex systems. In 2005, Professor Pisarchik organized the International Conference on Control and Synchronization of Dynamical Systems in Leon, Mexico, and was Chair of four international conferences. The results of his research have been published in more than 300 scientific works, including 110 articles in peer-reviewed journals, 5 chapters in books, and 5 patents, and he directed 20 research projects and supervised 7 Ph.D. degree students.
