Dr Vladislav Sorokin

Doctor of Sciences (Physics & Mathematics)

Biography

In 2010 obtained MSc degree from Saint-Petersburg State Polytechnical University and was awarded the medal of the University for exceptionally high achievements in educational and research activities.

In 2011 successfully defended PhD thesis at the Institute of Problems in Mechanical Engineering Russian Academy of Science after less than 1.5 year of postgraduate studies.

From 2006 till 2013 was a member of the research and development division at the Research and Engineering Corporation “Mekhanobr-Tekhnika”, Saint-Petersburg, Russia.

Since 2010 was a research fellow at the Laboratory of Vibrational Mechanics, Institute of Problems in Mechanical Engineering Russian Academy of Science (senior research fellow since 2012).

In 2013 awarded a personal post-doctoral grant from the Danish Council for Independent Research and FP7 Marie Curie Actions – COFUND for the project “Tailoring dynamic properties of spatially periodic structures” which was carried out at the Technical University of Denmark, Copenhagen, Denmark, during 2014-2016.

In 2016 awarded Doctor of Science degree from the Institute of Problems in Mechanical Engineering Russian Academy of Science. 

Since 2017 is a Lecturer at the Mechanical Engineering Department of the University of Auckland

Published more than 40 articles, contributions to monographs, patents, and refereed proceedings including papers in such journals as Proceedings of the Royal Society A and Journal of the Acoustical Society of America.

Research | Current

Structural dynamics and wave propagation, in particular, linear and nonlinear dynamics of spatially periodic structures and composite materials, e.g. vibration and acoustic isolators, building frames, bridge trusses, railway tracks, etc.

Analytical and semi-analytical methods for studying complex linear and nonlinear dynamics of systems from mechanics, physics, chemistry, biomechanics, and other fields of science and engineering
