Svyatoslav Korneev



Job: scientist

Svyatoslav Korneev’s research interests focus on multiscale analytical and numerical methods for solid and fluid mechanics. Currently, he is working on developing a new upscaling technique which carries the important micro-scale information up to the macro-scale level in a computationally efficient fashion. This research can potentially result in an accurate reduced order system of equations which model the process of advanced additive manufacturing.

Svyatoslav’s career in computational physics started in 2012 as a Ph.D. student in the Institute for Spectroscopy at the Russian Academy of Sciences. His program was focused on the theory of dark solitons and dispersive shock waves in Bose-Einstein Condensate (BEC) and nonlinear optics. After defending his Ph.D. thesis, he held a few postdoctoral positions. In November 2017, he joined Stanford University as a physical science research scientist.

With an extensive expertise in computational physics. Svyatoslav solved the stability of the elongated dark soliton problem, derived the law of motion for the ring dark soliton, and explained the formation of the dark soliton in polariton BEC. In an article published in the Journal of Fluid Mechanics, he showed that gaseous detonation in a supersonic radial outflow can be localized in space. This result was also registered as a patent for a new detonation-based turbine. Further, he developed a method of sequential homogenization and algorithm for reconstruction of unresolved geometry from X-ray computed tomography (XCT) images. These results were published in  Multiscale Modeling and Simulation: A SIAM Interdisciplinary Journal and  Water Resources Research.

Dr. Korneev received his Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics from the Institute for Spectroscopy at the Russian Academy of Sciences.

In his spare time, Svyatoslav enjoys surfing.
