Lubomir Ivanov joined Iona University in 1999. Prior to that Dr. Ivanov taught at Stevens Institute of Technology in New Jersey, where he completed a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science, MS in Computer Science, and a BS in Computer Engineering. At Iona, Dr. Ivanov has taught a wide variety of courses including data structures and algorithms, computer organization and architecture, and operating system design. Dr. Ivanov introduced several new courses into the undergraduate and graduate Computer Science curriculum including advanced computer architecture, parallel and scientific computing, mobile applications development, and web applications development.
 Dr. Ivanov has been actively involved in numerous research projects in areas as diverse as authorship attribution, automatic music style/instrument recognition, chemical process modeling, and parallel image/video processing. At present, Dr. Ivanov is also engaged in several collaborative projects with psychology, including a virtual reality simulator for anti-bullying education, and a comprehensive software suite to assist those suffering from non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI) behavior. Dr. Ivanov's work has been published and presented at many top conferences and journals in computer science.

At Iona, Dr. Ivanov has chaired and served on several departmental and college-wide committees, including the Faculty Senate and the Committee on Academic Affairs. From 2006-2009, Dr. Ivanov served as chair of the Computer Science Department.
