Prikhna Tetyana Oleksiivna, Academician of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, Doctor of Technical Sciences (Full), Professor, Academician of the World Academy of Ceramics (WAC), Academician of the Euro-Mediterranean Academy of Arts and Sciences (EMAAS), Head of the Department of High Pressure Technologies, Functional Ceramic Composites and Dispersed Superhard Materials of the V. Bakul Institute for Superhard Materials of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (ISM NAS of Ukraine), Professor of the Chair of Chemistry of the Kyiv National University of Construction and Architecture (KNUCA), Member of the Scientific Council of the National Research Foundation of Ukraine (NFDU), Member of the National Agency for Quality Assurance in Higher Education (NAQA).
The main research activity of T.O. Prikhna connected with the development of new ceramic materials having the necessary set of physicochemical characteristics – their synthesis, sintering, study of structure, properties and practical application. Over the years under her leadership and with her direct participation, a number of materials with a unique set of functional characteristics have been developed and researched, including high-temperature superconductors in the form of massive blocks, wires, thin films and Josephson junctions, materials based on MAX phases in the form of massive materials and coatings, single crystals of aluminum dodecaborides, massive materials based on refractory and shock-wave-resistant borides, carbides, nitrides and silicides, as well as nano- and micropowders of metals and their oxides and carbides, heavy and hard alloys made by electroerosive dispersion method. In her scientific works Prikhna TO studies the regularities of consolidation and synthesis of ceramic materials in a wide range of pressures and temperatures, using high quasi-hydrostatic pressures transmitted through solid media, isostatic gas pressures, hot pressing, spark plasma sintering, pressureless and vacuum sintering, magnetron and vacuum-arc evaporation methods. She specializes in the study of the structure of materials by scanning electron microscopy and Auger spectroscopy, as well as a comprehensive study of superconducting, electromagnetic, mechanical properties, chemical and mechanical resistance in reducing and oxidizing media in a wide range of temperatures.

Dr. Branko Matovic is Professor and Scientific Advisor and he also serves as Director of the Center for Excellence for the Synthesis, Processing and Characterization of Materials at Extreme Conditions. He received Dr. Rer. Nat. degree from the Max Planck Institute, Stuttgart, Germany. He is engaged in research that requires an interdisciplinary approach; ie. basic and applied research in the border area of basic sciences (chemistry, physics, biology) and engineering. experimental and computational investigations of materials obtained or operated under extreme conditions. The emphasis is on the innovative materials processed and/or exploited at high pressures, under high magnetic and electric fields, over a wide range of temperatures, radiation conditions, corrosive environments, under extreme mechanical loads and non-equilibrium thermodynamic conditions. He is currently acting as editor-in-chief of Journal of Innovative Materials in Extreme Conditions.
