Michail Alifierakis

RESEARCHER AND DATA SCIENTIST

SUMMARY

My graduate research is focused on developing models that produce tangible results directly comparable to experiments. Tackling the tough problem of modeling the physical properties of materials reinforced with graphene (a particle with diverse length-scales) I followed the approach of developing unique continuous models based on the physics of particle dynamics.
