Dr Maksym Bondarenko
Maksym leads our Spatial Data Infrastructure Team, where his research activities focus on development of the computational architecture for the efficient and rapid production of high resolution large area population distribution datasets. His work encompasses the management of a large number of global coverage spatial datasets, the efficient implementation of differing types of statistical models that integrate them and the delivery of output spatial datasets and accompanying metadata.
He received an MSc in Applied Mathematics in 2002 and a Master’s degree in Software Development in 2004 from Kharkiv State University, Ukraine. He completed his PhD in Computational Mathematics (Fluid Dynamics), at the University of Southampton in 2008. During a research fellowship, he was in charge of managing the lifecycle of the High Energy Physics Model Database (HEPMDB) project. HEPMDB acts as a central storage, calculation and dissemination point for the data produced by High Energy Physics (HEP) tools.
