Marat Andreev

  • Postdoctoral Researcher

Marat Andreev was born in Siberia, Russia. He received both his bachelor's and master's degrees in physics from Novosibirsk State University. In 2009, he moved to Chicago to join professor Jay Schieber’s group at Illinois Institute of Technology. He defended his PhD in December 2014 and stayed in Chicago by joining the de Pablo group as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Chicago.

Marat’s scientific interests lie in the physics of condensed matter. His bachelor and master thesis was concerning hydrodynamics. During his doctorate research at Illinois Institute of Technology, his focus moved to condensed soft matter and the dynamics of entangled polymers. Particularly, he worked on the development of the fundamental and accessible framework suitable for non-homogeneous flow simulations of entangled homopolymers. Marat also worked on the technical side of the project and developed an efficient GPU code. In the de Pablo group, he continues to work on entanglement dynamics but also extended his interests to charged polymers coacervation. Concurrently, he still is honing his GPU programming skills and applying them to his work.
