Mihhail Berezovski

CURRICULUM VITAE

Mihhail Berezovski is an expert in the fields of wave propagation in heterogeneous materials. He has formal training in engineering physics and has a very strong mathematics background. His research interest lies mainly in the realm of the computational mathematics and mathematical material science. The main subject of his research is numerical analysis of dynamic response of advanced and novel materials such as micro-structured, multifunctional, hierarchical, and dynamic materials.

Mihhail Berezovski is now the Assistant Professor at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University's Department of Mathematics.

Professor Berezovski was invited in 2011 to join the Department of Mathematical Sciences as a post-doc scholar. Mihhail focused his research on numerical analysis of dynamic materials, i.e. material substances with properties variable in space and time. Such substances produce a very special influence upon wave propagation, especially with regard to energy accumulation and storage, as well as to material transport. A productive study of such effects requires the development of non-standard numerical approaches.

Professor Berezovski is in the rock star category of teaching. He brings energy and excitement to the classroom. He is not afraid to experiment with technologies in the classroom, but it is mainly his style and humor that keeps his students alert. He connects with students, and they respond to him. This is evidenced by his evaluations.
