Education and experience: higher education, graduated from the Mechanics and Mathematics Faculty of Taras Shevchenko State University of Kyiv, Candidate of physico-mathematical sciences, PhD. Also graduated from the Kiev Conservatory on a piano class.

After the graduation from Taras Shevchenko State University of Kyiv Natalia decided to devote herself to a scientific work, she entered the graduate school of S.P. Timoshenko Institute of Mechanics USSR AS. She was working as an engineer, research assistant, researcher, senior researcher, head of the laboratory. Since 1986, she has been holding down two jobs at NTUU "KPI": Professor of Applied Mathematics and Department of Mathematical Methods of system analysis. Since 1997 N. Pankratova has been appointed as the Deputy Director of a scientific work of the ESC "IASA", since 2005 – as the Head of Department of Mathematical Methods of  System Analysis of IASA.


Pedagogical activity: N. Pankratova – the Professor of Mathematical Methods of System Analysis of the ESC "IASA", conducts courses "Fundamentals of Systems Analysis" and "Fundamentals of numerical methods". Students and graduates are the best helpers of N.D. Pankratova, about whom she modestly said: "I'm lucky with them". Lucky, because young people, than anyone else, feel a sincere desire of the mentor to share, to interest, to teach, and therefore try to deep up with her. Students participate in all research projects, carried out in the IASA, which relate to the predictions, a sustainable development, a multifactorial risk analysis under uncertainties of different nature. According to the results of real scientific research they carry out their courses, bachelor and master's works. Then someone stay to work at the department. And the theme of master's, becoming  more expand and extend, grows into a candidate's dissertation.


Scientific work: N. Pankratova - a renowned expert in the fields of systems analysis, information technology and mechanics of deformable solids. In these latter days, she has been working at a scientific research, which is concerned to the multidisciplinary problems of various nature. In particular, at developing future strategies of large enterprises, cities, regions and development of nondestructive testing to ensure safe operation of complex technical systems. Works are carried out in order of MES, NAS of Ukraine, Ministry of Economy, NSA of Ukraine and others. According to the areas of research, she has published over 350 scientific publications, including 16 monographs, 14 educational and methodical work, 11 problem-oriented computer systems and software packages.

In recent years, under the guidance of prof. N.D. Pankratova, V. Khokhlov, N. Nedashkivska, T. Podladchikova and others have defended their thesises. So, quite naturally, that is not the first year N.D. Pankratova is the titular of "Teacher-researcher of the KPI". She produced one PhD, 15 candidates of sciences and 70 Masters of the specialties of "System Analysis and Control" and  "Intelligent Decision Support Systems". She was awarded by NAS of Ukraine "For scientific achievements", and her alumnus N.I. Nedashkivska – c.t.s., department assistant of the Mathematical Methods of System Analysis - for young scientists "Talent, inspiration and work".
