Dr Vasiev has graduated from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology with a PhD in Biophysics in 1990. His research is focused on mathematical aspects of nonlinear dynamics and pattern formation in biological systems. He has gained his experience in a number of universities and research centres across Europe including Institute of Theoretical and Experimental Biophysics of Russian Academy of Science and universities in Utrecht, Munich and Dundee. Dr Vasiev is a lecturer in the Department of Mathematical Sciences of the Liverpool University since 2007. His research is associated with theoretical studies of biological development, demographics and aging. His early works were devoted to investigation of propagating waves in excitable systems and chemotactic motion of aggregating cells (Dictyostelium population). Most recently his research is focused on mechanisms of formation of morphogenetic patterns and migration of cells in developing tissues. He is also working on theoretical aspects of aging in human populations as reflected by mortality data.
