Alexander Potapov
Ph.D. student, Junior Research Fellow
Type of research: computer simulations
 Alexander S. Potapov studied physics and nanotechnology at M.V.Lomonosov Moscow State University. In 2010, he joined our group to work on his Diploma project, in which he has modelled the electro-osmosis of thin wetting films. In particular, he applied Dissipative Particle Dynamics simulations to test electro-hydrodynamic boundary conditions at charged liquid-gas interfaces and predictions of a mean-field theory developed in our group. The simulations were performed using the package ESPResSo. Alexander obtained his Diploma in 2012. The same year he became a PhD student and was appointed as a junior research fellow.
