Brief Biography

Prior to joining Queen Mary as a Senior Lecturer in 2012, Sergey was a Royal Society University Research Fellow in Cambridge University Engineering Department developing hybrid methods for computational aeroacoustics. In 2010, Sergey was awarded the Full Doctorate of Science (Habilitation Degree) from Keldysh Institute of Applied Mathematics Moscow for work on hybrid and direct models in computational aeroacoustics. He currently is a guest editor of the Royal Society Phil.Trans. A Theme Issue (Frontiers of aeroacoustics research: theory, computation and experiment) to be published in 2019.
Over the years, his research has been supported by the leading UK industry as well as UK Research Councils and the Royal Society of London with attracting research funding more than $3.5M.
In 2011-2014 he led the 3-year Flap Noise EPSRC project devoted to development of high-resolution computational methods for jet installation noise modelling. Since 2019, he leads development and application of Large Eddy Simulation tools based on Graphics Processing Cards (GPUs) for nozzle geometry optimisation in the framework of the JINA EPSRC project on jet-surface interaction noise. In 2013 and 2018, his research on jet noise modelling was supported by Aero Acoustic Research Consortium.
Since 2016, Sergey is a director of GPU-Prime.Ltd, a small computational engineering consultancy company specialising in high-performance computing that is based in Cambridge UK. His recreational activities include Korean and Chinese martial arts.
