Senior Project Director, Composites Integrity and Structures, Aerospace Faculty, Technical University of Delft
Maxim Kireitseu earned a PhD degree in dynamics and strength of machinery from the Institute of machine reliability Academy of Sciences in 2002 for the development of advanced metals-ceramics-polymer materials and integrated processing technology, including electro-chemical oxidation, thermal spraying and chemical-vapour deposition. He completed postdoctoral studies and R&D projects funded by the European and US programmes and hosted by the leading engineering departments at the University of New Orleans in 2003-2005, at the University of Sheffield in 2006-2008 and currently at the Delft University of Technology. In the period of 2008-2012 he worked for companies in industrial programmes and R&D projects specialising in aerosols, particles and fluid mechanics, environmental and processing technology, mechanical, aerospace and automotive engineering as well as a diverse range of industrial composite materials and related technology advancements, commercialisation of innovation and product management.
He is a fellow of British industrial management and marketing associations (Chartered Management Institute, Institute of Marketing Management), and received prizes for innovations from European and US organisations including the WELCH/IUVSTA in 2003 for vacuum sciences and technology, Marie Curie awards for nanocomposites in 2006 and 2012. He is an established technology and programme change consultant, worked as an advisor and programme manager for major corporations, private equity and funding bodies such as Innovate UK, UK Trade and Investments.
Currently he is shaping and delivering technology-enabled development and change programmes with consulting support provided across research, strategy, finance, people and programmes in aerospace and other industrial environments. He is also involved in the strategic research projects on industrial materials for applications in aerospace, automotive and other industries. He holds 10 patents on invention and utility models, has published over 100 articles in refereed journals, conference proceedings and industrial press releases for targeted audience.
