Curriculum Vitae:

Born in Gorna Oriachovitsa, Bulgaria. In 1977 she got the degree M.Sc. in Chemistry, Faculty of Chemistry, Sofia University, Bulgaria, Major: “Physical Chemistry”. Since May 1980, she has been research associate in the Department of Chemical Engineering (DCE), Faculty of Chemistry, Sofia University, Bulgaria. In 1994 she got the degree M.Sc. in Separation Techniques and Environmental Protection (Post graduate, TEMPUS). She has been a visiting researcher in Humboldt University, Berlin, Germany (Oct.-Nov. 1989) and in Ecole Normale Superieure, Paris, France (July – December 1993). During the period 1996 – 1999 she was PhD student on a freelance basis. Her expertise includes the application of various experimental techniques in colloid science: thin liquid films: microscopic foam and emulsion and macroscopic vertical films, thin film balance; surface-force apparatus; electrokinetic phenomena (zeta–potential); foam and emulsion stability; surfactant micelles; surface tension measurements; optical microscopy and optical observations. So far, she has published 26 research articles cited 530 times; h-index = 15.
