Biography

Professor Elena P. Ivanova received PhD from the Institute of Microbiology and Virology, Ukraine; ScD from the Pacific Institute of Bio-organic Chemistry, Russian Federation; JD from the University of Melbourne; GradDip from the Law Institute, Victoria. Professor Ivanova worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization, Japan; Visiting Researcher at the Center of Marine Biotechnology, University of Maryland; joined Swinburne University of Technology in 2001.
Professor Ivanova is recipient of AIST and JSPS Fellowships, Japan; UNESCO Biotechnology Fellowship; Research Excellence Award of the Governor of Primorye; Prominent Young Doctor of Science Award of Russian Federation, Morrison Rogosa Award from American Society for Microbiology, U.S.A. She published two books, 14 book chapters, 4 patents, in excess of 220 research papers. She is Editor for Antonie van Leeuwenhoek (Springer), editorial board member for Microbes and Environments (Japan), NanoScience and NanoTechnology (Switzerland), reviewer for 20 plus scientific journals, member of NHMR Advisory Panel, ARC and NHMRC assessor, external PhD thesis examiner. Professional activity is concentrated in fundamental and applied fields of Nano/Biotechnology. The research interests are also focusing on design, fabrication and operation of planar micro-devices; immobilization of bio-molecules and micro-organisms in micro/nano/environments, bacterial taxonomy and bacterial interactions with macro/micro/nano-structured surfaces.
