Dr. Golubev is a tenured Professor at the Department of Aerospace Engineering of Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. He joined the school in 2001 following a 3-year industrial engineering research experience at the Trane Co. His primary research interests include high-fidelity numerical analyses of unsteady flow-structure interactions with focus on applications in aerodynamics, aeroacoustics, propulsion and flow control. He developed computational high-fidelity prediction analyses also applied to other disciplines such as financial engineering. At Embry-Riddle, Dr. Golubev is the founding Director of ERAU Propulsion and Aerodynamics Computational Laboratory. He now leads an interdisciplinary Computational Aero Propulsion Group of multi-university Florida Center for Advanced Aero Propulsion combining faculty and students from different academic programs and collaborating in multi-disciplinary areas of Flow, Flight and Propulsion Control of Micro-Air Vehicles, with focus both on fundamental and applied science of MAV operation in gusty urban environments. Dr. Golubev authored over 60 refereed journal and conference publications and was a Keynote speaker at several engineering meetings. His research efforts are currently supported by NSF, Air Force Research Laboratory, Air Force Office of Scientific Research, Florida Center for Advanced Aero Propulsion, and United Launch Alliance. He has been a member of AIAA Aeroacoustics Technical Committee since 2005, and served as organizer and co-organizer of two AIAA Aeroacoustics meetings and numerous conference sessions. Dr. Golubev is an AIAA Associate Fellow, and has served for several years as the Air Force/ASEE and NASA Summer Faculty Fellow. Dr. Golubev is the 2011 recipient of ERAU Outstanding Researcher Award.
