Pavel Klinov is a Research Scientist jointly employed by Clark & Parsia and the University of Arizona. He first worked for C&P as an intern in Summer 2007 and then joined in early 2011 after defending his PhD at the University of Manchester, UK.

Pavel seems to have an unexplained inability to spend more than 3 years in one place. After graduating with MSc in Computer Engineering from the Moscow Engineering Physics Institute he went to work in CERN, where he was basically a Java programmer. Being satiated of unbearably smooth life in Switzerland, he applied to a few randomly chosen PhD Schools in the US and got admitted to the University of Cincinnati, where his advisor was Dr. Lawrence Mazlack. Having spent 2.5 years there he was dragged across the Atlantic by Bijan Parsia and became his PhD student at the University of Manchester, working on probabilistic Description Logic (essentially continuing his initial work at C&P). It took him 3 years to graduate after which he moved to Boston. Now he works on various semantic stuff for C&P and ontology modularity for iPlant project in Arizona (supervised by Damian Gessler).

Pavel leaves in Quincy MA with his wife Elena, a sound designer and recording engineer, whom he is trying to convert to the only religion he respects: soccer.
