## Taras Mel'nyk

Taras Mel’nyk obtained a Doctor of Physics and Mathematics (Habilitation) degree, from the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv, Ukraine, in 2002 and Ph.D. degree (Candidate of Science), from the Moscow State University, Russia, in 1989. His thesis adviser was the Academician, Professor Olga A. Oleinik. Since 2003, he has been working as a Professor at the Department of Mathematical Physics, Faculty of Mathematics and Mechanics, the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv. His research interests include asymptotic analysis of boundary-value problems in domains with complex microinhomogeneous structure (perforated materials, composite materials, thick multistructures, domains with rapidly oscillating boundaries, domains with concentrated masses, thin domains, etc.), homogenization theory, perturbation theory and spectral analysis, partial differential equations, variational inequalities, and optimal control problems. He serves as a Member of the American Mathematical Society (AMS) and Reviewer of the AMS. He received the Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship.
