Dumitru Baleanu is a Professor at the Institute of Space Sciences, Magurele-Bucharest, Romania and a visiting staff member at the Department of Mathematics,Cankaya University, Ankara, Turkey. Dumitru got his PhD from the Institute of Atomic Physics in 1996. His fields of interest include the fractional dynamics and its applications, fractional differential equations and their applications, discrete mathematics, image processing, bio-informatics, mathematical biology, mathematical physics, soliton theory, Lie symmetry, dynamic systems on time scales, computational complexity, the wavelet method and its applications,
Dumitru is a pioneer of the fractional variational principles and their applications in control theory. He is one of the co-authors of the seminal paper entitled Anomalous diffusion expressed through fractional order differential operators in the Bloch-Torrey equation, published in Journal of Magnetic Resonance (2008),which plays now a fundamental role within diffusion weighted MRI. Dumitru had an important role in developing the non-singular operators with Mittag-Leffler kernels and their applications in real world phenomena.
He is a co-author of 15 books and he published more than 1000 papers indexed in ISI journals. His H index is 61 and he is a highly cited researcher in Mathematics and Engineering in 2019.
He organized several prestigious international conferences in various countries. He won the ICFDA2018 Award: Innovation in Fractional Calculus and 2019- Obada Prize.
Dumitru is a co-author of a Chinese Patent No： ZL 2014 1 0033835.7 regarding chaotic maps and its important role in information encryption.
He is the Editor in Chief of Progress in Fractional Differentiation and Applications and he is a Co-editor in Chief of Discontinuity, Nonlinearity and Complexity.
Dumitru is an editorial board member of Applied Numerical Analysis, Mathematics, Symmetry, Mathematical Methods in Applied Sciences, Fractional Calculus and Applied Analysis, Alexandria Journal of Engineering, Open Physics, Advances in Difference Equations, Journal of Computational and Nonlinear Dynamics.
