Mihail Nedjalkov, born in Sofia, Bulgaria received a master's degree in semiconductor physics at the Sofia University "Kl. Ohridski", a PhD degree (1990), habilitation (2001) and D.Sc. degree (2011) at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (BAS). He is Associate Professor at the Institute of Information and Communication Technologies, BAS, and has held visiting research positions at the University of Modena (1994), University of Frankfurt (1998), Arizona State University (2004) and mainly at the Institute for Microelectronics, Technische Universität Wien. Nedjalkov has been supported by the following European and Austrian projects: EC Project NANOTCAD (2000-03), Österreichische Forschungsgemeinschaft MOEL 239 and 173 (2007-08), FWF (Austrian Science Fund) P-13333-TEC (1998-99), P21685-N22 (2010-2014), P27214-N27(2017- date), START (2005-06), and P21685 'Wigner-Boltzmann Particle Simulations' (2009-current). He has served as a lecturer at the 2004 International School of Physics 'Enrico Fermi', Varenna, Italy. He is a member of the Italian Physical Society, APS and AMS reviewer, and has over 100 publications: 50 in journals, 50 in proceedings, 18 in books, and 3 book chapters. His research interests include physics and modeling of classical and quantum carrier transport in semiconductor materials, devices and nanostructures, collective phenomena, theory and application of stochastic methods.
