Education and work experience

Prof. Dr. Omarov is director of the LLP “Fesenkov Astrophysical Institute”. In 1994 graduated from the al-Farabi Kazakh National University diploma with honors (majoring in mechanics and applied mathematics). Passed internship at the department of operational planning and cargo integration office for the International Space Station at the space mission control center, Houston, Texas, USA (1994). Studied at the International Space University, Cleveland, Ohio, USA (1998). In 1999 — defended his PhD dissertation on the specialty (01.03.02) Astrophysics and radio astronomy. From 2001 to 2002 fellowship of the German DAAD Foundation in Astronomisches Rechen Institute (ZAH, Heidelberg, Germany) under supervision Prof.Dr. Rainer Spurzem. In 2003-2004 fellowships of DAAD-NATO and German Science Foundation (DFG) at the Astronomisches Rechen-Institute (ZAH, Heidelberg, Germany).

Chingis Omarov’s scientific interests include research in the field of celestial mechanics, stellar dynamics and computational (nbody6++) and observational astrophysics. In 2007-2012 he was co-PI of the German-Kazakhstan grant of the Volkswagen Foundation in “Star-Disk” project led by Rainer Spurzem. From 2017 to 2019 he was a co-PI of the Chinese-Kazakhstan grant, funded by the National Astronomical Observatory of China, CAS supervised by Prof. Dr. Spurzem. Since 2017 co-organizer of Kazakhstan-China-Korea (KCK) annual workshop on astrophysics to be soon transformed to the Silk Road Conference. Since 2022 he is a member of the executive committee of the International Virtual Observatories Alliance.

In 2023 he took an active part in the International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP), a professional exchange program (USA). Within this program, he studied the best practices of the leading US space centers, got acquainted with space technologies and leading specialists of these centers.
From 2024 Prof. Dr. Chingis Omarov – member of the National council on science and technology under President of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
