Professor Volkov's research is on Partial Differential Equations theory, Integral Equations theory, and asymptotic and numerical methods. He is interested in abstract existence and uniqueness questions as well as inverse problems and their numerical solutions. He has collaborated with geophysicists and engineers to work on problems related to electromagnetic theory, or seismology. He has published over 30 research papers in prestigious scientific journals. He has taught all levels of math classes, such as Linear Algebra II, Introduction to Analysis, and Graduate Analysis. He particularly enjoys how WPI students are forthcoming in talking to him outside class time, as he believes that the most valuable learning experience occurs during one-on-one discussions.
