Pavel Ryzhakov was born in Saint-Petersburg, Russia in 1982. He received his BSc in Mechanical Engineering (2003, KIT, Karlsruhe) and MSc in Computational Mechanics (2006, TUM, Munich) in Germany and PhD in Spain (thesis: "Lagrangian FE methods for coupled problems in fluid mechanics", UPC)
Since 2010 he is working as a researcher at CIMNE, developing numerical methods in KRATOS Multiphysics software http://www.cimne.com/kratos/
His main line of research has been the development of numerical models and computational algorithms for multi-physics problems, in particular fluid-solid interactions, thermally coupled problems and multi-phase flows. His research interests also include strategies for fast solutions of discrete systems describing flow problems. He has published 20 research papers and a monogrpah, participated in 40 national and international congresses http://kratos-wiki.cimne.upc.edu/index.php/User:Ryzhakov. He has participated in 17 R&D projects.
Throughout his studies he had been awarded Carl von Siemens shcolarship (1999), Youth and Knowledge award (Germany, 2004), Honours degree award (Germany, 2006) and European Commission Marie Curie doctoral grant (Spain, 2006). He also received Juan de la Cierva post-doctoral grant (2013) of Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitivenes and Jose Castillejo mobility grant (2017).
In 2017 he was awarded Juan Carlos Simó prize of Spanish Association for Num. Meth. in Eng. (SEMNI) for his contributions to coupled problems modeling.
Since 2013 Dr. Ryzhakov is also working as a lecturer. He had supervised 1 PhD and 4 Master theses and is supervising a 2nd PhD student presently. He is accredited as "agregat/acreditació de recerca" by AQU and as "profesor contratado doctor" by ANECA.
