About Elena
I used to teach physics in the Nizhny Novgorod State University, Russia, for 8 years. After moving to the US, I worked as a research scientist for NOAA's Center for Tsunami Research between NOAA/PMEL and the University of Washington for 7.5 years. Now, I continue tsunami research as a consultant/affiliate scientist with NorthWest Research Associates. I author/co-author multiple publications in scientific journals, and just finished writing a book "Tsunami propagation in tidal rivers" for Springer Nature, currently in production.
Teaching Experience
I taught general physics subjects (mechanics, thermodynamics, hydrodynamics, oscillations and waves theory, electromagnetism, optics) for 8 years, which also involved teaching relevant mathematical ideas and procedures. I also developed a curriculum and taught a class in numerical methods of data processing (time-series analysis, digital filtering, discrete Fourier transform, wavelet transform, data compression). I worked with a diverse student community -- high school graduates and students coming from the workforce, physics majors and...

• Wrote a book “Tsunami Propagation in Tidal Rivers”, summarizing outcomes of the collaborative research between NWRA and the Tohoku University, Japan. The book is intended for a broad audience, including non-specialized readers interested in natural phenomena. To be published by Springer Nature. In production. • Developed and documented an open-source numerical model Cliffs for simulating tsunami propagation and land inundation, hosted on GitHub (https://github.com/Delta-function/cliffs-src). • Validated Cliffs and obtained its...
University of Washington, Research Scientist
2005 - 2013
• Developed modeling products for the NOAA’s tsunami forecasting operations. • Applied methods of mathematical physics to aid different aspects of tsunami forecasting, such as: – analyzed wave resonances in bays and harbors; – developed a capability of short-term tidal predictions at a recording site with an unknown tidal regime; – developed a number of in-house tools for separating tidal and tsunami signals. • Developed, supported and validated numerical codes for tsunami modeling.
