About Me

image

I am a commendation Graduate Doctor from Rostov On Don State Medical University, working since 1981 in Strovolos, Cyprus, as a Private Physician.

I also hold a Diploma in General Medicine Practice from the University of Surrey, Basic and Advanced courses in Aviation Medicine, PPL (Private Pilot License) and I am Authorised Medical Examiner for the Cyprus Department of Civil Aviation.

Since 1995, I teach new pilots the subject "Human Factors in Aviation", one of the necessary prerequisites for pilots to acquire a PPL.

I represent the Cyprus Airsports Federation (CAF) at CIMP (International Medico physiological Commission of the International Airsports Federation).

As of 2010, I was appointed by the Cyprus Sports Organisation as a member of the Highest Committee for the Health of Athletes.

Since May 2017, I have been appointed as Head AME of the Cyprus Aeromedical Centre.

As of 2018 I am lecturing on the “Aviation Management” BSc Degree of the European University of Cyprus.

Finally, I have special interest in the use of low-level laser therapy, which I use for therapeutic purposes since 1984. The past years I introduced to my practice a new photo therapy device, a 300mW LED.

I enjoy relaxing music, open mindsets, involving discussions, focused people, action and social movies, as well as documentaries and paranormal phenomena/UFO.

Cooking is one my favorite activities and very often you will find me in the kitchen preparing something delicious for my family or friends.
