Anatoly  Legchenko
Associate Editor

Anatoly Legchenko was graduated in the former USSR at the Electrotechnical Institute of Novosibirsk (NETI) as an Engineer in computer sciences and electronics. His PhD diploma in physics and mathematics from the Computing Centre of the Siberian Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences was titled “Inverse problems in geophysical NMR tomography”. In 2001, he received a diploma in geophysics from the University Paris XI (France): “Habilitation à diriger les recherches (sciences de la terre)” (HDR). Between 1981 and 1995, he was employed as an Engineer and then as a Research Scientist at the Institute of Chemical Kinetics and Combustion of the Siberian Branch of Russian Academy of Sciences (ICKC, Novosibirsk, Russia). In 1995, he joined the Bureau de Recherches Géologiques et Minières (BRGM, France) and, in 2003, the Institute de Recherche pour le Développement (IRD, France). He is a Senior Scientist attached to the Université Joseph Fourier (France). His main research area is focalized on hydrogeophysics particularly on the development of new methods of non-invasive NMR water prospecting (conception and hardware and software for measuring and interpretation) and on the methodology of practical applications. His technical knowledge in electronics, computer sciences, geophysics, and applied mathematics (data processing, numerical modeling, and inversion) is completed by his administration experience linked to the practical implementation of the scientific results. He is a regular reviewer in many scientific journals and many times acted as an Invited Editor for Near Surface Geophysics and the Journal of Applied Geophysics. He is the author of a textbook, numerous patents, papers, and field reports.
