Name Mladen Kranjčec Work address University of Zagreb, Geotechnical faculty Hallerova aleja 7, 42000 Croatia, Hrvatska Phone (+385-42) 408 918 (+385-42) 408 902 Fax (+385-42) 213 587 E-mail Home address Zagrebačka 19, 42000 Varaždin, Croatia Home phone (+385-42) 213 583 Date and place of birth Mart 14 1948, Varaždin, Croatia Marital status Married, wife Vlatka, daughter Marta Mladen Kranjčec was born in Varaždin, Republic of Croatia, on 14 March 1948. He finishes primary and grammar schools in Varaždin. He is a graduate and a Master of Science in Solid State Physics from the Faculty of Science at the University of Zagreb. He defended his doctorate dissertation in 1993 at the Ruđer Bošković Institute (IRB) in Zagreb. From 1975 to 1978 he is an assistant in Semiconducting Physics Laboratory at IRB. In 1978 he is an assistant at Geotechnical Engineering College in Varaždin, then a part of the Faculty of Mining, Geology and Oil Engineering of the University of Zagreb. Since 1982 he has been a lecturer in Physics. He teaches Hydraulics between 1987 and 1994. Following the foundation of the Faculty of Geotechnical Engineering in Varaždin in 1991, he continued lecturing until 1996 when he became Senior Lecturer and a Reader in 2002. He is a Science Adviser in Technical Sciences - Physics, and a Full Professor in 2010. Presently, he holds the chair in Physics I and Physics II at the Faculty of Geotechnical Engineering in Varaždin. Between 1986 and 2010 he collaborates and visits several times (for over than two years) the Semiconductor Optics Laboratory of the Department of Semiconductor Physics at the Uzhhorod National University (also known as UzhNU) of Ukraine, the Uzhhorod Department of the Institute for Nuclear Research of the Ukraine Science Academy, and at the Physics Institute of The National Taras Shevchenko University of Kyiv, Ukraine. As a scientists, he has been active in the physics of condensed matter including research in metal-semiconductor contact, multi-component semiconductor compounds, superionic conductors, nanostructured materials, and opto-electronic materials. Between 1978 and 2004 he is a part-time collaborator with IRB. His publications so far include 66 scientific papers (49 of which are cited in the Current Contents, the rest in SCI and INSPEC bases). He is a co-author of two international scientific monographs and seven patents, and a participant in over 60 conferences at home and abroad. He is a reviewer for the Physics (A), A Journal of Experimental and Theoretical Physics (by the Croatian Physics Society), the Journal of Physics and Chemistry of Solids, and the Vacuum (edited by Arun Bansil, Boston, USA, and J.S. Colligon, UK, respectively). He is a permanent member of the International Programme Committee of the Clusters and Nanostructured Materials Conference (CNM), International Meeting. Since 2007 he has been the Principal Researcher in the Project 160-0982886-0837 (Nano-Effects and Influence of Disorder on Materials for Solid State Ionics) by the Ministry of Science, Education and Sports of the Republic of Croatia. Throughout the past project period he is the Principal Researcher in two more projects (160160 and 160004) for the Ministry of Science and Technology, and an associate in the project 00980301 by IRB. In Academic Years 2002-2003 and 2003-2004 he is the Vice-dean for Teaching; between Academic Years 2004-2005 and 2008-2009 he is the Dean of the Faculty of Geotechnical Engineering. He is an honorary doctor (doctor honoris causa) from the UzhNU. He initiated scientific collaboration between UzhNU and the University of Zagreb. He is a member of the Croatian Physics Society and the Croatian-Ukrainian Friendship Society.
