Andrey V. Subbotin has obtained his M. Sc. Diploma in 1984 and Ph.D. in 1991 from the Department of Physics of the M.V. Lomonosov Moscow State University. Since 1987 he is working at the Laboratory of Polymer Rheology, A.V.Topchiev Institute of Petrochemical Synthesis (Russian Academy of Sciences), where he is currently a leading research fellow. In 2008 Andrey has obtained his D.Sc. (Habilitation) in Physics and Mathematics from the N.N.Semenov Institute of Chemical Physics. He spent several extended visits as a visiting research fellow at the University of Naples, Italy (Prof. G. Marrucci), University of Nagoya, Japan (Prof. M. Doi
), University of Groningen, The Netherlands (Prof. G. ten Brinke). Since 2017 Andrey is a leading research fellow of the Laboratory of Physical Chemistry of Modified Surfaces
at the A.N.Frumkin Institute of Physical Chemistry and Electrochemistry. His current research interests are mostly focused on self-organization in polymer systems, dynamics and rheology of polymers. He has published more than 60 papers in peer-reviewed journals.
