Dr. Vladimir Frid
Dr Vladi Frid is a senior and qualitative researcher with significant experience in the fields of rock physics (fracture mechanics/dynamics) and applied geophysics (acoustic/seismic emission and electromagnetic radiation). During the period of his work at BGU he was a principal researcher in several investigations granted by Ministry of Infrastructure and Israeli Academy of Science. He was a research team leader (Isotop Ltd) in the frame of international investigation (European Research Agency - FP7-PEOPLE-2011-IAPP - Marie Curie Industry-Academia Partnerships and Pathways, grant agreement No. 284544 (PARM2). This research in the field of fracture dynamics consisted of a wide cooperation with several Universities abroad (Univ. Loughborough (UK), Univ. Aberystwyth (UK), Univ. Liverpool and Rzeszow Univ. of Technology (Poland)). Being one of 12 international experts/reviewers assessed different research areas in the frame of a research audit on hydrocarbon recovery of Skoltech University (that is the modern Russian University created last years jointly with MIT), he was noted by the General Manager as the only one whom was able to commenton all research directions of the unit". The areas of research which were reviewed included the fields of hydraulic fracturing and fracture dynamics among others areas in rock physics. His scientific list includes more than 50 referred papers and two monographs (including invited by Spinger)
