Mihhail Berezovski is an expert in the fields of wave propagation in heterogeneous materials. He has formal training in engineering physics and has a very strong mathematics background. His research interest lies mainly in the realm of the computational mathematics and mathematical material science. The main subject of his research is numerical analysis of dynamic response of advanced and novel materials such as micro-structured, multifunctional, hierarchical, and dynamic materials.

Mihhail Berezovski is now the Assistant Professor at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University's Department of Mathematics.

Dr. Berezovski is in the rock star category of teaching. He brings energy and excitement to the classroom. He is not afraid to experiment with technologies in the classroom, but it is mainly his style and humor that keeps his students alert. He connects with students, and they respond to him. This is evidenced by his evaluations.
