Samvel K. Shoukourian received the Doctor of Science degree in Physics and Mathematics in 1990 and the Academic Rank of Professor in Computer Science and Software Engineering in 1993 from the Supreme Certification Board (Moscow). In 1996, he was elected a Full Member of the National Academy of Sciences of Armenia. Currently he is the Scientific Leader of IT Educational and Research Center, Yerevan State University (YSU), Yerevan, Armenia. Since 1994, simultaneously with the work at YSU, he has been Chief Scientific Advisor and Development Director in different international companies. Since 2000, he is directing the Department of Embedded Test and Repair at Virage Logic Corporation (USA) and since 2010, the same department at Synopsys, Inc (USA). He has authored more than 90 papers, and holds 1 Russian and 5 U.S. patents. The main topics of his current research interests include testing of electronic devices and systems, formal models of distributed systems, information technologies and architectures for multimedia virtual environments.
