Alexei Krekhov


Dr. habil. Alexei Krekhov received his PhD in theoretical physics from the Perm State University (Russia) in 1990 studying defects in liquid crystals. During his Humboldt Research Fellowship at U. Bayreuth from 1994-96 he studied pattern formation in liquid crystals. Starting 1999 he was a researcher at U. Bayreuth working on pattern formation in complex fluids and soft matter theory. In 2010 he received the habilitation in theoretical physics from U. Bayreuth. He joined the institute in October 2013. His current research interests include nonlinear dynamics in excitable media, two phase convection and modeling of cell motility.
