Khirevich's scientific and research interests relate to computer simulations of transport (flow, diffusion, hydrodynamic dispersion) in complex geometries, addressing such aspects of this topic as computer generation of porous media, its geometrical analysis, accuracy of transport simulations, and structure-transport correlations. For simulations he heavily employs the lattice Boltzmann and random-walk particle-tracking methods both implemented for efficient execution on supercomputing platform at a scale.
Siarhei Khirevich graduated from Belarusian State University with a diploma in Radiophysics and Electronics in 2005. Hereafter he moved to Germany (Magdeburg and later Marburg) to pursue a doctoral degree under the supervision of Prof. Ulrich Tallarek at Universities of Magdeburg and Marburg. Khirevich remained with the group as a Post-doctoral Fellow to perform additional research relating to findings during his Ph.D. studies. After short-term visit with Prof. Irina Ginzburg (France) in 2014, Khirevich joined the group of Prof. Shuyu Sun as a Post-doctoral Fellow at KAUST (Saudi Arabia). In 2015, he joined EGG as its first Research Scientist.
Best poster awards at HPLC 2009, 2010, and 2012 conferences.
