Dr. Aleksey Baldygin

Mechanical engineer (E.I.T.) specializing in computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided engineering (CAE). Applies strong knowledge of fluid dynamics and strength of material to analyze physical processes, and provides engineering support to experimental setups. Developed numerous experimental-setups for pilot projects. Proven ability to lead and finish the projects by acquiring updated technologies of available commercial CAD/CAE packages with understanding of built-in CFD packages. Devised core flooding experiments to analyze the effect of emulsion flooding for enhanced oil recovery, and designed the experimental set-up for pilot project of proof-of-concept of bioconversion of coal. Designed experimental set-ups and hydraulic units to qualify choke valve products as per API 6A, 17D, 17D Annex L (Hyperbaric testing guildelines), 17 TR8 standards. Developed multi-tasking skills and creative thinking while successfully managing several projects simultaneously. Demonstrates excellent communication and team building skills. Easily adapts to changes.
