Borislav ANGELOV

Senior Scientist, ELI Beamlines, Institute of Physics, Czech Academy of Sciences, Czech Republic


Borislav ANGELOV received a Ph.D. degree in Biophysics from the Institute of Biophysics at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences where he was appointed a Research Associate in 2002. He was a fellow of the Marie Curie host site Laboratoire de Physique de Solides (LPS Orsay), Paris-Sud University. After a postdoctoral stay at the GKSS Research Centre (Geesthacht, Germany) and Aarhus University (Denmark), he continued X-ray structural investigations of drug delivery nanoparticles at the Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry (Prague). Currently he is a senior scientist at ELI Beamlines (Institute of Physics, Czech Academy of Sciences, Prague). His research interests are in the field of time resolved studies of biomolecular structural dynamics.
