In January 2016 I joined the School of Computing and Engineering as a Lecturer in Engine Systems (internal combustion engines).
After obtaining my engineering degree in internal combustion engines at the Pacific National University (Russian Federation). I continued my studies completing a MSc in Aerospace Engineering at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology (Israel) where I studied gas turbine and jet engines. My MSc thesis evaluated the concept of flameless oxidation combustion, which was low NOx combustion technology that could be adapted to gas turbine engines.
I then moved to Imperial College London to study towards a PhD in mechanical engineering. My PhD thesis entitled as 'Experimental study of combustion and scalar mixing in swirling jet flows' was dedicated to problems of scalar mixing and combustion in swirling reacting and non-reacting jet flows. During my PhD I was involved in 'Design London' collaborative project at the Imperial College London Business School where I served as a technical adviser to evaluate the economic potential of a new biomass-fired power plant.
After completing my PhD, I became a Research Fellow in Optical Diagnostics for Sprays at University of Brighton (Brighton, UK) where I conducted experimental studies on the atomisation and combustion of diesel fuels by using optical diagnostic techniques. I was involved in collaborative work with a number of different universities and external partners, i.e. BP plc, Ricardo plc., Sandia (ECN Spray A/B), City University, University of Bergamo.
I was a recipient of the Alan Howard Scholarship for energy futures (London, UK) as well as Israeli scholarship (Haifa, Israel), Design London Fellowship (London, UK), Travel award (Seoul National University, Seoul, South Korea), Travel award, (Beihang University, Beijing, China).
