Biography

Boris Chetverushkin was born on January 26, 1944 in Moscow.

He graduated a Moscow School No. 170 in 1960.

In 1966 he graduated the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (Faculty of Management and Applied Mathematics). He then continued his studies at postgraduate program of the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology.

He earned his first advanced degree in Physical and Mathematical Sciences in 1971 with a thesis on the simulation of the dynamics of a radiating gas (under the supervision of A. Samar).

He defended his doctorate in Physics and Mathematics in 1981, on mathematical modelling of problems of radiative gas dynamics. In 1988 he received a professor's title.

In 2000 he was elected a corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

In 2011 he was elected an academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences (Department of Mathematical Sciences (Mathematics, Applied Mathematics).

Since 1968 he worked at the Applied Mathematics Institute at the USSR Academy of Sciences, from 1968 to 1990 - at the Mstislav Keldysh Applied Mathematics Institute at the Russian Academy of Sciences, since 1990 as a vise director, from 1998 to 2009 - Director of the Institute of Mathematical Modelling. Then he was working as a director of the Mstislav Keldysh Applied Mathematics Institute at the Russian Academy of Sciences (up to 2015).

He teaches at the Faculty of Computational Mathematics and Cybernetics at the Lomonosov Moscow State University. He is the Head of the Department of Computational Methods (Moscow State University).

He is a member of the editorial board of a journal "Mathematical modeling" and "Journal of Computational Mathematics and Mathematical Physics".

He has supervised about 30 of the candidate of science students and about 5 doctorate students.

Field of research:

High-temperature gas dynamics and plasma physics using mathematical modeling; viscous gas and liquid, combustion processes; parallel computing.
