Current positions



I began my research carrier at the Lavrentyev Institute of Hydrodynamic (Novosibirsk, Akademgorodok, Russia) in 1990, where I worked on development and applications of modified version of finite elements method, then on the numeric solution of the dynamic deformation of the stainless steel plate on the various matrices. The calculations were performed with a FORTRAN_77 code which I developed and tested. The results of my research were published in the Institute Annual Reports and were presented at   conferences.

Between 1995-1998 I enjoyed teaching the University students at the Novosibirsk State Technical University and Novosibirsk State University in Calculus and Applied mathematics.  Since I moved abroad with my family in 1998, I have been working as a self-employed Maths tutor first in France, then after 2001 in the UK. My experience in teaching students of different age and abilities was widened by work at MANCAT (Manchester)

In 2010, I completed my PhD study in Accelerator Physics at the University of Liverpool. The work included the application and upgrade of the existing spin-orbit tracking computer codes, such as SLICKTRACK, as well as the development of the own numerical algorithms and programs.  

Shortly after graduation from the University of Liverpool in December 2010, I was employed by the University of Hamburg where I worked on the ILC (International Linear Collider) luminosity calculation. Another area of my research was an optic design of section for the combined spin-rotator/spin flipper for the pre-damping ring region of the ILC.

The work on the ILC project were continued  during my work at the University of Oxford. On the numerous occasions, I presented the results of study on national and the international conferences, workshops, and meeting (see the list of  publication).

Since 2015, I have been working as a part-time lecturer in at the University of Salford teaching various subjects. I have developed and implemented the   Multiple-choice Phase tests for the most of   level 4 modules. I am currently responsible for the release of the tests, update of the question banks and monitoring the student’s engagements with the tests.  In addition, I run remedial tutorial sessions for all Level 4 students in   Thermodynamics, Fluid Dynamics, Engineering Mathematics, and   Engineering Structures.


Currently I am teaching the following modules:

  •     Engineering Mathematics E1 Level 4(20 Credits)
  •     Engineering Structures, Level 4, 10 Credits 
  •     Mechanical systems, Level 3

I have taught many other modules in Engineering in the last 5 years such as Computational Aerodynamics, Engineering methodology, Engineering Materials and involved in Laboratory sessions and marking for Level 5 and level 6.
