EDUCATION

1989 – Dr. Sc. [scientific degree of the Doctor “Habilitation”, “venia legendi”] (mineral prospecting, marine stratigraphy, Palaeontology, biology). Thesis: Quaternary Foraminifera of the Pontian-Caspian Region (the Black Sea, the Sea of Azov, the Caspian Sea and the Aral Sea): taxonomy, biostratigraphy, history, ecology, from the Department of Palaeontology, Geological Faculty, Moscow M.V. Lomonosov State University, Russia. There is no equivalent to this academic title in North America – This title qualifies for a full professor position in the countries of the former Soviet Union. Unlike a Ph.D. thesis, the above thesis must demonstrate novel and independent research without an academic advisor, and must be of substantial benefit to the scientific community. Several significant publications, including books, are one of the eligibility requirements.
