Oleg Kontsevoi, Ph.D.
Materials Design Engineer
Ph.D. Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Institute of Solid State Chemistry of Russian Academy of Sciences, 1995
M.S. Physical Chemistry, Mendeleyev University of Chemical Technology of Russia, 1989
Current Role at QuesTek
Oleg Kontsevoi specializes in the design and computational materials modeling and ab initio calculations of thermodynamic and kinetic properties with density functional theory for predicting processing-structure-property relationships in materials design projects.
Background and Specialization
Oleg Kontsevoi an expert in the area of computational solid state physics and materials science, including predictive studies of mechanical properties, deformation and plasticity of materials, theory of point, linear, planar and extended defects in metals and alloys, structure, phase stability and thermodynamics of transition metals, intermetallics, steel and iron alloys based on first-principles electronic structure calculations. His studies focused on novel materials for high-temperature and structural applications on the basis of ab initio calculations and multi-scale modeling of mechanical and deformation properties.
He is an active member of American Physical Society (APS), The Minerals, Metals, and Materials Society (TMS), and Materials Research Society (MRS)
