Biography

Dr Andrei Ermakov received a PhD degree in 2020 from the University of Southern Queensland, Australia. His research topic is dedicated to Development of Rigorous Methods in Fluid Mechanics and Theory of Water Waves. He also has a Candidate of Science (2011) and Master’s (2009) degree in Mechanical Engineering from Saint Petersburg State University, and Bachelor’s degree (2007) in Marine Engineering & Applied Mathematics from Saint Petersburg State Marine Technical University, Russian Federation.

In January 2020 Andrei joined the Centre for Ocean Energy Research (COER) at NUI Maynooth as a postdoctoral researcher, on the LiftWEC project (https://liftwec.com/). This is a collaborative academic research project funded under the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. The LiftWEC project focuses on the development of a new type of wave energy converter which extracts ocean wave energy using lift forces generated on a rotating hydrofoil.
