Brief Biography

Prior to joining SEMS as a Senior Lecturer in 2012, Sergey Karabasov was a Royal Society University Research Fellow in Cambridge University Engineering Department. Sergey has PhD in mathematical modelling from Moscow State University in 1999 and Full Doctorate of Science (Habilitation Degree) from Keldysh Institute of Applied Mathematics Moscow in 2010. His research is devoted to high-resolution and multiscale modelling in computational aero and hydrodynamics. Over the years, his research has been supported by the leading UK industry as well as UK Research Councils (EPSRC and NERC) and the Royal Society of London. Internationally, his research into multiscale modelling methods for sound generated by jet turbulence in collaboration with Ohio Aerospace Institute was supported by Aero Acoustics Research Consortium (AARC). In collaboration with Dr Nerukh?s group in Aston University Sergey developed a new scheme for numerically coupling the continuum fluid dynamics equations with the molecular dynamics. The idea formed the basis for a 1.2 M Euro multi-lateral G8 project which involved Queen Mary, Aston University and several other research institutions in Japan and Russia. The goal of the project was to develop a new non-local boundary condition for industry-standard open-source molecular dynamics codes to allow one to truncate the computational domain size and, thus, speed up the simulation. Sergey was a guest editor of the Royal Society PhilTrans A special issue "Multiscale systems in fluids and soft matter: approaches, numerics, and applications" in 2014. In 2015, together with Dr Nerukh, he organised the CECAM/Lorentz Workshop "Virus as a whole: meso- and macroscopic structure and dynamics at all atom resolution" in Lausanne, Switzerland.
