Professor Jordan Yankov Hristov was born in the town of Dupnitza on September 7, 1954. His parents were teachers of mathematics and physics. He is married to Dr. Violeta Dimitrova, MD, professor of obstetrics and gynecology. Prof. Hristov has two children: Andrey Hristov and Yana Hristova.
Professor Jordan Yankov Hristov has graduated from Electrical Engineering (Measurements), Technical University of Sofia in 1979. Professor Hristov is working at the Department of Chemical Engineering, University of Chemical Technology and Metallurgy in Sofia. Just after his graduation he was ordered to work (36 years ago this was the state system in Bulgaria) in the Department of Chemical Engineering of the Higher Institute of Chemical
Technology (now University of Chemical Technology and Metallurgy). The department was interested in development of modern experimental installations in the educational process and the engineering profile of Jordan exactly met these needs at the time. Starting from a position
of a technician, even though he was a graduate engineer, he was promoted in the next 3 years to a research fellow. In 1998 he was promoted to the associate professor position and in January 2014 to a professor of Chemical Engineering.
