I am a PhD-level consultant doing modeling and simulations in materials science and applied physics. I have over ten years of international experience in mathematical modeling and numerical simulations (molecular dynamics, Monte Carlo, phase field).

I have a doctorate degree in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Michigan. I co-authored 15 scientific articles in computational Materials Science and Engineering, including two as first author in Physical Review Letters.

Varied materials systems: semiconductors, metals, polymers

I worked on various material systems: semiconductors (nanostructure formation during heteroepitaxial growth), metals (competition between pearlite and martensite formation in steel, nanograins and nanowires of shape-memory alloys), polymers (glass transition).

Numerical simulations in Materials Science and Engineering

Monte Carlo simulations

At the University of Cambridge, I developed a new, faster (factor 100) computer simulation method within the framework of Monte Carlo lattice model to predict polymer glass-transition temperatures.

Molecular dynamics simulations

In order to better control dopant diffusion during device processing, I studied the effect of stress on point defects in semi­conductors in collaboration with mechanical engineers.

Working closely with experimentalists, I designed a mathematical model to determine under what conditions pits would form in hetero­epitaxial semi­conductor thin films. [Phys. Rev. B 70, 235312 (2004)]

Phase-field simulations

martensite simulation

On a project I initiated, I showed how various parameters affect the interplay between martensite and pearlite formation in steel (which cannot be done experimentally). [Phys. Rev. Lett. 97, 055701 (2006)]

Collaborating with experimentalists, I used phase-field simulations to explain how alloying may stabilize poly­crystalline thin films and dramatically enhance their performance. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 98, 085503 (2007)]
