Personal profile

Research interests

I have graduated from Novosibirsk State University in 2001 with Bachelor degree and in 2003 with Master degree. I got my PhD from National University of Singapore in 2009 on this topic of computational fluid mechanics.

Through my two postdocs, in EPFL (Lausanne, Swizerland) and the University of Minnesota (USA) I was working on mathematical analysis of coupling of atomistic and continuum description of solids, my work has been award the 2013 SIAM Outstanding Paper Prize. After assuming an Assistant Professor position at Skoltech, my main interest is in development and practical applications of models of interatomic interaction (aka interatomic potentials) with a multidisciplinary approach that combines ideas from computational mathematics, machine learning and physics and has applications in materials science, physics, and chemistry.

Entrepreneurship and Innovation activities

Participated in the first Skolkovo Startup Incubator (Initiation Global Technology Business, conducted by A. Fertman, Skolkovo Foundation) 21-23 March, 2019

Academic Reputation and Societal Impact

Our group have developed a code to automatically accelerate quantum-mechanical calculations through constructing a machine-learning approximant. The code is used by about 30 members of academia; and two research groups have expressed interest in using the code commercially.
