Ph.D. in Mathematics, June 1998 TULANE UNIVERSITY, New Orleans, LA M.Sc. in Applied Mathematics, December 1994 TULANE UNIVERSITY, New Orleans, LA M.Sc. with Honors in Applied Mathematics, June 1992 MOSCOW STATE UNIVERSITY Moscow, Russia
Research Interests: mathematical biology, numerical analysis, numerical solution of PDE's, high performance computing, data vizualization

My primary research focus is on mathematical modeling of nonlinear waves in excitable media. I study arrhythmias and defibrillation (arhhythmia termination by a strong electrical shock) by modeling electrical activity in cardiac muscle.
