He was born on February 8, 1954 in Armenia. He graduated from Azerbaijan State University, Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics in 1976. From 1976 to 1994, he had been working at the Institute of Mathematics and Mechanics of National Academy of Science of Azerbaijan Republic. In 1994 he came to Turkey and since then has been working as Professor at Yildiz Technical University, Department of Mathematical Engineering before (2008) and Department of Mechanical Engineering (from 2008 until now), in Istanbul. He has got Ph.D. degree (1981) and Doctor of Sciences degree (1988) in S.P. Timoshenko Institute of Mechanics of the NASU. He was named Professor in 1992 and 2001 was elected Corresponding Member of National Academy of Sciences of Azerbaijan. He is author of 4 monographs three of which is published in Springer and more than 450 scientific papers 221 of which are published in SCI type journals. His main scientific interest lies in the mechanics of composite materials and his study topics are mechanics of composite materials, fracture, stability of materials, crack problems, stability loss problems, FEM, electrodynamics problems for the initially stressed systems, perturbation method, dynamics of hydro-elastic and viscoelastic systems. He is a member of the International Advisory Boards of many SCI journals such as “Mechanics of Composite Materials”, “International Applied Mechanics” (before 2016). He is also a member of Editorial Board of “TWMS Journal of Pure and Applied Mathematics” and others.
