    BioI'm a professional computational scientist. I specialize in simulations of complex multidimensional flows and transport (6 years), simulation of heat transfer (6 years), parallel computations in MPI (6 years), scientific visualization and data processing (6 years), simulations and mesh preparation in OpenFOAM (2 years), development in Wolfram Mathematica (6 years), Python and Fortran 90 (6 years). I'm familiar with the industrial level numerical simulations of fluid dynamic and aerodynamic in a complex geometry (3 years). I use modern simulation tools, like OpenFOAM and have a strong background in developing numerical solvers (3 years). I also have experience in image processing, image segmentation, and pattern recognition (1 year).

    I graduate Saint-Petersburg State University in 2006. The year before the graduation I joined to P&G Gillette Russia as a data scientist at Quality&Assurance department, where I developed a database for collecting and analyzing information from the production line of Gillette blades. After the graduation, I transferred to the full-time position in P&G. Following the experience in the industry, I decided to try myself in academia. I received Ph.D. in theoretical physics from the Russian Academy of Sciences in January 2012 (under the supervision of Dr. Anatoly Kamchtnov). Subsequently, I held a postdoctoral position at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) under the supervision of Dr. Kasimov and a postdoctoral position in the Mechanical Engineering department at San Diego State University in Dr. Battiato’s research group, where I joined in March 2015. In January 2017 I joined to Stanford School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Science.

    Education

    2011. Ph.D. in theoretical physics, Institute for Spectroscopy, Russian Academy of Sciences. Thesis title “Nonlinear dynamics of Bose-Einstein condensates of atoms and polaritons”, scientific advisor Anatoly M. Kamchatnov.

    2007. Diploma in astronomy, Saint-Petersburg State University, Department of Mathematics and Mechanics.

    Experience

    2015 – 2016. San Diego State University. Recently I was working on a numerical and analytical investigation of reactive transport in heterogeneous porous medium from geological formations.

    I have been actively involved in the development of novel multiscale computational methods for reactive transport in heterogeneous porous media. My efforts have focused on the development of sequential homogenization approaches for the upscaling of heterogeneous porous media and their validation by extensive numerical simulations in OpenFOAM. In this regard, I was awarded an Amazon Web Services Research Grant, through which I am performing most of the parallel computations related to the project. Results of my research were recently published in Multiscale Modeling and Simulation: A SIAM Interdisciplinary Journal (MMS (14), no. 4 2016).

    2012 – 2015. King Abdullah University of Science & Technology. I was responsible for analysis and numerical simulations of reactive supersonic flows.

    I investigated gaseous detonations in supersonic flows for various heat release models and published a paper in the most respectful journal, Journal of Fluid Mechanics (JFM (760), pp. 313-341, 2014, "http://dx.doi.org/10.1017/jfm.2014.598"). In this research, I analyzed steady-state detonation solutions and performed extensive two-dimensional simulations on our group's Linux cluster.
