Professor: Alexey Cheremisin
Maxim Gavrilenko is a geologist-geochemist with extensive experience in studying geological processes occurring in the Earth’s crust at high temperatures and pressures involving wide spectrum of various phases, chemical reactions and physical processes. Having a M.Sc.-degree in Geology and Geochemistry from Moscow State University (Russia), Maxim completed his Ph.D.-degree at Rutgers University (USA) in 2016, in part with the support of the sole Fulbright Doctoral Fellowship awarded to Russia in 2011. Maxim’s research interests include the chemical evolution of magmas in different tectonic settings, and the role of subsurface magmatic processes driving and controlling the Earth’s crust differentiation and particularly the continental crust formation. His work focused on studying of magmatic processes using chemical signatures in magmatic rocks and is based on 1) analytical examination of natural rock using such modern methods as EPMA, ICP-MS, SIMS; 2) laboratory high-pressure (up to 1 GPa) and high-temperature (up to 1500oC) experiments with rock samples using different apparatus; 3) numerical simulation of physical and chemical processes occurring in the Earth’s crust.
At Skoltech Maxim will focus on experimental research of the Center for Hydrocarbon Recovery, such as, experimental simulation of thermal enhanced oil recovery processes in conventional and unconventional reservoirs.
