USA: Physics professor leading research on lithium batteries; helped develop battery pack for Chevy Volt

Professor of Physics Valeri Petkov didn’t know what he wanted to be while he was growing up.

“I don’t really remember when I got interested in this field,” Petkov said. “I was a kid curious in science.”

In 1983, Petkov earned his master’s of physics degree at the University of Sofia in Bulgaria. He later earned his Ph.D. for physics from Sofia in 1991.

It all began at the school, where Petkov taught classes from 1993-98. From there he joined the Michigan State University staff from 1999-02, where he later accepted his current position today at Central Michigan University in 2002.

“I am stuck in college and (I’m) still here after 30 years,” Petkov said.

One of the things Petkov said stood out to him was how CMU faculty always try to help each other and be courteous.
