Oleg Kirillov received his M.S. degree in physics and mathematics with honors from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, Moskovskaya oblast, Russia. He got his Ph.D. degree in theoretical mechanics from the Lomonosov Moscow State University, Moscow, Russia. As a JSPS Fellow, he was working at the Department of Mathematics of the University of Kyushu, Fukuoka, Japan. With a Humboldt Fellowship, he was a Visiting Scholar at the University of Hannover, Hanover, Germany, Technical University of Darmstadt, Darmstadt, Germany, and Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf, Dresden, Germany (HZDR). Currently, he does his research at the Magnetohydrodynamics Division of the Institute of Fluid Dynamics of HZDR, Dresden, Germany. Dynamical systems are his main research interest with the emphasis on stability and dynamics of dissipative and nonconservative systems, integrable systems, dissipation-induced instabilities, and related spectral problems in a broad range of applications: from multibody dynamics to magnetohydrodynamics, acoustics, and crystal optics. Together with Paul Binding, Thomas Bridges, Igor Hoveijn, Yasuhide Fukumoto, and Dmitry Pelinovsky, he has organized a very successful BIRS Research 5-day Workshop on Spectral Analysis, Stability, and Bifurcation in Modern Nonlinear Physical Systems. His vision of the nonconservative stability theory is presented in his recent monograph Nonconservative Stability Problems of Modern Physics published by De Gruyter in the series De Gruyter Studies in Mathematical Physics.
