I was born on 16th of October 1977
in Dnepropetrovsk (Ukraine, formerly USSR), where I have lived till
2001, except of autumn 1985,
when my family lived in Chernogolovka. From January 2001 I live in
Delft, The Netherlands.
I am a Ph.D. student (aio, post-graduate student) at Department of Applied Mathematics of Delft University of Technology
(TUDelft). My supervisor is Prof. Aad J. Hermans.
The subject of the research is "Diffraction of surface waves on very large floating platforms"
(for different values of depth, types of the platform and a corner of wave's incidence).
Results of our common work are published in several papers and presented at international conferences.
The objective of the research is to describe the interaction between
incident water waves and floating platforms. The study can be applied for the
development of the very large platforms for purposes of the floating
airports, artificial islands, etc.
In June 1999 - December 2000 I was a competitor (special form of Ph.D. program) in
Dnepropetrovsk National University (DNU).
My supervisor in DNU was Prof. Vladimir V. Loboda. The subject of research was "Bending of plates with rigidly fixed edges"
(with different forms and boundary conditions). At the same university
my diploma work has been completed on the connected subject. Papers with results of our work are also given in list of publications. I have got my M.Sc. diploma in June 1999.
