Dr. Yuriy V. Kostyuchenko, Ph.D., D.Sc., Associated Professor, is a Leading Research Scientist and leader of Mathematical modeling of Geo-systems and Risk analysis Work-group of Scientific Centre for Aerospace Research of the Earth, National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.
He received an MS in Astrophysics and Stellar Astronomy from Moscow State University in 1993. After that he joined National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine as a Scientist, where he received his PhD in Geophysics and Remote Sensing in 1997, and D.Sc. in Engineering and Remote Sensing in2018. In 20112014 he served on position of Assistant Professor of Geomatics, Geostatistics and Remote Sensing in the Geomorphology and Soil Science Department of the Faculty of Geography, Kiev University. Since 2000 he serves as Executive secretary of Ukrainian National Member Organization of International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA).Since 2018 he is a member of Scientific Board of National Research Foundation of Ukraine.
Yuriy V. Kostyuchenko is a member of American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), member of American Meteorological Society (AMS), American Statistical Society (ASA), member of the International society for optics and photonics (SPIE), and International Association for Promotion Geoethics (IAPG). He is author and co-author of more than 70 scientific papers and book chapters in fields of remote sensing, Earth sciences (ecology, climate change), engineering, applied mathematics and social sciences (psychology, social anthropology, terrorism and cyber-terrorism study).
His research interests include remote sensing and GIS application for environmental, socio-ecological, domestic and homeland security analysis, complex risk analysis using non-parametric approaches, climate change and disaster analysis for environmental, agricultural, food and water security.
In field of domestic and homeland security analysis his research interest focused on big data, multisource data and satellite observations utilization for violence group behavior analysis, terrorism identification, and analysis of social, technological and environmental impact of conflicts and terrorism.
Modern threats have global and inter-linked nature, and so its minimization requires international and interdisciplinary cooperation.
Since 2014 Ukraine is facing dramatic challenges in field of security. It requires form scientific community new approaches to analysis of violence behavior and terrorism drivers aimed to relevant decision making. In this context we need to share our data and to harness an international methodological support to minimize actual risks and threats, and to represent our experience for international community.
Number of national projects and initiatives could be included into international context, and could increase understanding of violence and radicalization,public awareness and preparedness,and effectiveness of decision making if field of security, counterterrorism and conflict management.
