Dr Osiptsov has received his MSc degree in Continuum Mechanics (2005) and PhD degree in Fluid Mechanics (2006) from Lomonosov Moscow State University (MSU). In 2005-2014, Dr Osiptsov worked part-time as an Assistant Lecturer and later as an Associate Professor at the Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics, Lomonosov Moscow State University, teaching courses in Fluid Mechanics and supervising MSc and PhD students. In 2005, Dr Osiptsov also joined full-time the Schlumberger Moscow Research Center to work on multiphase flow modeling with application to the development of new technologies for oilfield services industry. Before joining Skoltech, Dr Osiptsov held the position of Principal Research Scientist and Research Program Manager at Schlumberger and was primarily involved in projects on multistage fracturing of oil and gas wells.
Scientific interests of Dr Osiptsov lie in the field of asymptotic methods, multiphase flow modeling, suspension flows, and new technology for oil and gas industry, in particular hydraulic fracturing. He has more than 50 publications, including 16 papers in peer-reviewed journals and 5 granted patents. Dr Osiptsov is a member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers and a reviewer for a number of professional journals, including Fluid Dynamics, Doklady Physics, Proceedings of Russian Academy of Sciences, and International Journal of Rock Mechanics and Mining Sciences, SPE Journal.
At Skoltech, Andrei Osiptsov is involved in research projects in collaboration with Russian oil & gas companies and academic institutions on themes related to multiphase flows, especially in wells and hydraulic fractures, with the general application to new technology for the oil and gas industry. Dr. Osiptsov is also engaged in supervising students on fundamental and applied aspects of mechanics of multiphase media.
