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.
