Assistant Professor, Director
Professor Andrienko received his Ph.D. in Applied Physics from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology in 2013 and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from Wright State University in 2014 under the guidance of Drs. Sergey Surzhikov and Joseph Shang. Andrienko’s research during these studies was related to the advanced computational models of radiation transfer and nonequilibrium thermodynamics in hypersonic flows.
Joining the research group of Professor Iain Boyd as a postdoctoral fellow in 2014, Andrienko concentrated on developing the ab-initio models of chemically reacting nonequilibrium flows from first principles. This included modeling of collisions in the high-temperature air with potential energy surfaces, statistical analysis of the data and implementation in the CFD program codes.
