Elchin Khalilov (Azerbaijani: Elçin Xəlilov; born April 26, 1959) is a geophysicist who works in the area of geodynamics and geotectonics.

Biography[edit]

Early life and family[edit]

Elchin Nusrat oglu Khalilov was born in 1959 in Baku to the family of a known Azerbaijani petroleum geologist. His father, Nusrat Yusif oglu Khalilov, a doctor of geological and mineralogical sciences, professor, honored geologist of Azerbaijan, and President’s pension recipient. His mother, Rena Huseyn gizi Khalilova, is a teaching physician at the Azerbaijan Pedagogical University.[1] His grandfather, professor Huseinbey Agabeyov M.D. who fought in World War II and was awarded with numerous state orders and medals, was a scientist in gynecology and head of the gynecology department of the Azerbaijan Medical University. His great-grandfather Sadykh bey Aghabekov,[2] professor and orientalist, served in the tsarist army in the early 20th century, holding the rank of Major General.[3] In the new democratic government of Azerbaijan in 1918-1919 General Sadykh-bey Agabeyzade was First Deputy Minister of Interior and, during several months, also an acting Minister of Defense. Azerbaijan’s democratic government remained in power until Azerbaijan’s accession to the Soviet Russia (1920). Later, general and professor Huseinbey Agabeyzade emigrated and lived in Istanbul (Turkey) and France for a long time. In Paris, Huseinbey Agabeyzade worked as professor at the University of Sorbonne where he taught oriental studies.[4] During that period, he wrote several monographs on oriental studies in French. At the time of his death, Huseinbey Agabeyzade was professor at the University of Krakow, Poland. A street in Lvov which was then part of Poland is named after him.[5] Elchin Khalilov’s mother Rena Khalilova (Agabeyova) is a known Azeri educator. Rena Khalilova who has followed in the footsteps of her father, Huseinbey Agabeyov, received her degree in medicine after graduating from the Azerbaijan State Medical Institute and has been teaching medicine for over 40 years at the N.Tusi Azerbaijan State Pedagogical University (formerly V.Lenin Azerbaijan State Pedagogical Institute). She is mentioned in the book “Prominent Women of Azerbaijan” (2002 edition). Elchin Khalilov has been married since the age of 18 and has two sons: older Anar, manager, lives in Prague, Czech Republic and younger Farid, student at the European University in Munich, Germany. Elchin Khalilov’ wife Tamila Khalilova, PhD, who carries out a large number of scientific and social activities as to using natural minerals for better health and quality of life, is Vice-president of the “Intergeo-Tethys” International Scientific-Technical Complex. She is mentioned in the book “Prominent Women of Azerbaijan” (2003 edition). She directs the “Zeoline” international program on application of natural minerals of zeolites in medicine and cosmetology. In 2011, Tamila Khalilova was elected Co-Chairperson of the International Organization “Zeolite: Health and Ecology” (Munich, Germany).

Education[edit]

Elchin Khalilov showed a great interest in knowledge and science as early as from his childhood. He graduated from the M. Azizbekov Azerbaijan Oil and Chemistry Institute (now the Azerbaijan State Oil Academy) in 1981 with a degree in geophysics.[citation needed] While in school, he had five scientific works published in collections for young scientists. After the graduation he entered a postgraduate school and from 1981 to 1984 he was a postgraduate student at the I.M.Gubkin Institute of Geology of the Azerbaijan Academy of Sciences.[6]

In 1984 E.Khaliov defended his Ph.D. thesis in geotectonics. In the same year, he was presented with the highest award for young Azerbaijani scientists – Lenin Komsomol Prize of Azerbaijan in Science and Technology as recognition of his scientific achievements. In 1990 he defended his doctoral thesis at the Lomonosov Moscow State University on studying and prediction of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, and was awarded the highest academic degree, which is Doctor of geological and mineralogical sciences.[7]
