Research experience:
10+ years of research in geophysical and general fluid dynamics and applied mathematics in scientific institutions. Specifically:
The theory of rotating fluids, including Ekman and Stewartson layers, the problem of spin-up/spin-down, geophysical vortices, flows generated by sinks and sources of mass;
Dynamics and stability of quasi 2D shear flows e.i. 2D flows with bottom friction), including linear and weakly nonlinear stability theory, secondary vortex interactions, and turbulence;
Numerical simulation and visualization of two-dimensional flows; quasi-spectral methods and arrays of point vortices;
k--epsilon turbulence models for turbulent Ekman layer;
Theory of turbulent mixing and spectra of passive scalar in two-dimensional turbulence;
Principal Component Analysis in application to atmospheric and experimental data, generalizations onto data with gaps;
Theoretical interpretation of data from laboratory and numerical experiments in fluid dynamics.
Teaching experience:
Advanced mathematics to gifted children in primary school.
Programming experience:
Five years programming in C language for IBM PC machines, including low-level printer, display and COM-port control, TSR utilities, high-level GUI under DOS and MS Windows 3.1, OLE 1, database applications (with Paradox Engine library). Also familiar with FORTRAN, BASIC, Emacs Lisp, UNIX shell, TeX (as a programming language), have some experience with Assembly language, and C++. Wrote CGI scripts for interactive HTML hypertext, dealt with NCSA HDF scientific data format, neural network simulations, and fluid dynamical computations;
Familiar with Microsoft C programming environment and a number of other software for PC, as well as with UNIX workstations and X-Windows system (including elementary graphics programming).
