Academician of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus (1947), Doctor of Chemical Sciences (1936), Professor (1945). Honored Worker of Science and Technology of the BSSR (1954).
Scientific works on the theory of plastic deformation and metal forming. Developed mathematical methods for studying the processes of metal flow during rolling, forging and stamping. Introduced the concept of mechanical deformation schemes, on the basis of which he created a classification of technological processes, based on their influence on the plastic properties of metals.
Author of more than 120 scientific papers, incl. 8 monographs.
