Neli Jordanova

Neli Jordanova graduated with a degree in geophysics and obtained her PhD at Faculty of Physics of Sofia University “St. Kl. Ohridski”. Since 1996 she has worked at the National Institute of Geophysics, Geodesy and Geography of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences and presently she is a Professor there. She was awarded the degree “Doctor of Science” in 2015, based on her dissertation on magnetic properties of soils in Bulgaria. N. Jordanova’s research interests cover different aspects of environmental magnetism and archaeomagnetism, such as exploring the link between magnetic properties of different types of soils and pedogenic processes, inherent to each of them; application of this knowledge to reveal the magnetic signature of anthropogenic pollution of soils and sediments; elucidating the influence of fire on magnetic properties of clays and soils and related effects on archeological materials of burnt clay.
