KAUST Research ConferenceCombustion in Extreme ConditionsMarch 5-8, 2018
Alexei Poludnenko received his Bachelor degree in Physics and Mathematics from the National University "Kyiv-Mohyla Academy" in Kyiv, Ukraine, and Masters and Ph.D. degrees in Physics and Astronomy from the University of Rochester. Upon graduation, he joined the Department of Energy ASC Flash Center at the University of Chicago as a postdoctoral researcher. Subsequently, Dr. Poludnenko worked at the Naval Research Laboratory first as a National Research Council postdoctoral fellow and later as a permanent research staff member. Currently, he is an associate professor in the Department of Aerospace Engineering at the Texas A&M University. His research includes theoretical and computational studies of turbulent combustion in chemical and thermonuclear systems, numerical algorithm development for computational fluid dynamics, and high-performance computing. Dr. Poludnenko was a recipient of the Distinguished Paper Award at the 36th International Symposium on Combustion, the 2016 François Frenkiel Award for Fluid Mechanics of the American Physical Society Division of Fluid Dynamics, and the Alan Berman Research Publication Award of the US Naval Research Laboratory.
