Professor Tsirelson joined Mendeleev University at 1979. His research efforts have been in a study of the bonding in molecules and solids by X-ray and electron diffraction in the combina- tion with quantum chemistry. He has developed of numerous experimental and calculation schemes and techniques for the study of the electronic, nonlinear optical and magnetic properties of the crystalline systems in terms of the electron density and electrostatic potential. His interests span a wide range of topics including characterization of the materials by the diffraction and quantum chemical methods, topological analysis of the atomic and molecular interactions, accurate X-ray and electron crystallography. He has produced more then 25 of the Ph.D and M.Sc. students successfully working now in the USA, Japan, Australia, Germany and Russia.
