   He was born in Moscow in 1939, 24 August and he was studied in Kharkov State University since 1961 till 1966. His PhD thesis: “Phase transitions in nonideal crystals on the basis of Ising model”, Doctor of Science thesis: “Nonisothermal macrokinetics of heterogeneous phase transitions in condensed matter”. From 1969 to 2015 he worked at the positions from junior up to leading research scientist in the theoretical department of Kharkov Institute of Physics and Technology (now A.I. Akhiezer Institute for Theoretical Physics NSC KIPT). Since September 2015 he is a professor of the theoretical physics department of Kharkiv National University named after V.N. Karazin. Since 1994 he is a professor of the department for low temperature physics concurrently.
Main theoretical works devoted to low temperature physics of normal and superconducting metals and crystallization physics of amorphous substances (glasses).
