Professor Oleg V. Vasilyev


Professor Oleg V. Vasilyev, is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Colorado Boulder and the director of Multiscale Modeling and Simulation Laboratory. He received the MS degree in Applied Mathematics and Physics from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology in 1991, and the MS and PhD degrees in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Notre Dame, in 1994 and 1996, respectively. Prior to joining the University of Colorado, he was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, University of Missouri - Columbia (9/1998-8/2002) and Research Fellow at the Center for Turbulence Research, Stanford University (9/1996-8/1998). Professor Vasilyev conducts research in the general area of theoretical and computational fluid mechanics with the emphasis on the creation of novel approaches for modeling and simulation of complex flows, development of low order “physics-capturing” models and robust computational methodologies with tight integration of the numerics and physics-based modeling, and applications of these novel approaches to multi-scale/multi-physics fluid problems of engineering and scientific interest. Prof. Vasilyev is the author and co-author of more than 100 peer-reviewed journal and conference publications. Prof. Vasilyev has given more than 200 lectures at conferences and universities around the world. Professor Vasilyev is a Fellow of both the American Physical Society and the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, and the recipient of Fredric William Basel Research Award from Alexander Von Humboldt Foundation.
