Alexander Pankov works as a Professor of physics at the Gomel State Technical University (GSTU) in Belarus. His major field of interest is theory and phenomenology of elementary particles, in particular the consequences of the standard model of electroweak and strong interactions, its various extensions, and the possibility of their observing at present and future high energy lepton and hadron colliders. He is the author of about 100 peer-reviewed journal articles. Professor Pankov received his undergraduate and advanced degrees in physics from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, Moscow, Russia (1976). He received his Ph.D. degree (1982) and D.S. degree (1994) in theoretical physics from the Institute of Physics, National Academy of Science of Belarus in Minsk. He has been appointed as a Full Professor of physics and Head of Laboratory for Physical Studies at the GSTU (1993). He worked as a Regular and Senior Associate, Abdus Salam ICTP, Trieste, Italy, from 1996 to 2007; a Fellow of the Training and Research in Italian Laboratories (TRIL) Programme (ICTP). He serves as a the Head of the Abdus Salam ICTP Affiliated Centre (region of Central and Eastern Europe), since 2004. He is also a Collaborator with the ICTP High Energy Section group, INFN (Sezione di Trieste) and Department of Theoretical Physics, University of Trieste, since 1988. Professor Pankov received the National Academy of Science prize (Belarus, 1998), the Bruno Rossi fellowship (Italy, 1994), and The President of Belarus fellowship (2002 and 2010). He is a Member of the following study groups: ATLAS Experiment at the LHC and International Linear Collider (ILC). He is also a Fellow of the Belarus and Italian Physical Societies.
