Pavel Stoev

Pavel Stoev is Editorial Director of Pensoft, and oversees the Journals Department. Besides his editorial responsibilities, he also holds a position of Professor of Zoology at the National Museum of Natural History in Sofia. Having graduated from Sofia University in 1998 he completed his PhD in Zoology at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences in 2003. Since then he has specialized in research institutions in the USA, Denmark, Germany, UK, France, Switzerland, Russia, The Netherlands, Hungary, etc. His research involves systematics, ecology, functional morphology and evolution of cave and soil-dwelling arthropods, life in extreme environments – caves, high mountains, deserts – biological invasions, novel methods and tools for publication and visualisation of biodiversity data. Pavel has published more than 100 articles and (co-)authored or (co-)edited several monographs. He has also taken part in the development of all open access journals of Pensoft. Pavel is involved in several EU research projects, and is a member of the IUCN SSC Cave Invertebrate Specialist Group.
