Alexey is a research engineer in the field of hierarchically structured materials having energy, biomedical and structural applications. He received a Candidate of Science (PhD) degree from the Department of Physical Chemistry of NUST MISiS (1997). His doctoral thesis was devoted to the investigation of the structure changes in metal powders under high-energy mechanical activation and alloying.
Dr Alexey Salimon for more than 20 years works in the field of new materials and technologies: nanostructured metals and alloys, quasicrystalline intermetallics (University of Newcastle, UK, 1997-1998), bulk metalic glasses, composites, elastomers resistant to explosion decompression. In 2002-2004 Dr Salimon has developed the expert system for the finding of application for new materials under Professor M.F. Ashby leadership in INPG (Grenoble, France). Dr Salimon has a wide practical experience as equipment engineer in industry mainly in companies producing oil & gas equipment and related parts for them (Volgogradneftemash, Volzhsky Pipe mill, REAM-RTI Ltd, Frenzelit-Werke GmbH).
Since joining Skoltech in 2018 Dr Alexey Salimon is lecturing the course of “Materials Selection in Mechanical Design” and assists in lecturing of the course “Applied Materials and Design”.
