The main areas of Evgeni Fedorovich's activities are boundary layer meteorology and environmental fluid dynamics in their relation to various aspects of atmospheric dynamics and physics. His current research efforts include (i) investigation of entrainment and turbulence structure in the atmospheric convective boundary layer; (ii) analytical and numerical studies of buoyantly driven flows along sloping heated/cooled surfaces (slope winds); (iii) exploration of scale structure and self-similarity of boundary layer flows along thermally perturbed surfaces; (iv) numerical modeling of atmospheric boundary layers in mesoscale atmospheric flows, and (v) numerical studies of turbulence regimes in stably stratified (nocturnal) boundary layers and nocturnal low level jets. Courses taught by Dr. Fedorovich extend from Atmospheric Dynamics, Atmospheric Thermodynamics, Meteorological Measurements, and Radiation and Climate at the undergraduate level to Boundary Layer Meteorology, Atmospheric Turbulence, Advanced Atmospheric Dynamics, and Numerical Modeling/Simulation of Atmospheric Boundary Layer Flows at the graduate level. In his research and teaching, Dr. Fedorovich seeks to synthesize theoretical, numerical, observational, and experimental (laboratory) methodologies. Dr. Fedorovich received Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellowship in 1991 and Alexander von Humboldt Research Award in 2009. He worked as Invited/Visiting Professor at the Ecole Centrale de Nantes (France) in 1998, at the University of Karlsruhe (Germany) in 2001, and at the Hamburg University and Max-Planck Institute for Meteorology (Germany) in 2010. In 2008, he received the AMS Journal of the Atmospheric Sciences Editor's Award for &quot;thorough, sustained, critical, yet constructive reviews on a wide range of topics related to atmospheric boundary layers and turbulence&quot; and Dean&Atilde;&cent;&iuml;&iquest;&frac12;&iuml;&iquest;&frac12;s Award for Excellence in Research and Scholarship from College of Atmospheric and Geographic Sciences, University of Oklahoma.
