Felix Sharipov studied at the Faculty of Aerophysics and Space Research, Moscow University of Physics and Technology. He obtained his Ph.D. degree at the Ural State Technical University, Sverdlovsk Oblast, Russia. In 1988, he joined the Physics Faculty of Ural State University where he set up his activity in rarefied gas dynamics. In 1992, he moved to the Federal University of Parana, Brazil, where he built up a group on numerical modeling of gas flows in microscale. His research interests are in numerical methods of rarefied gas dynamics applied to microfluidics, vacuum technology, and aerothermodynamics. His group develops both probabilistic and deterministic approaches. The first one represents the Monte Carlo methods while the second one is based on the kinetic Boltzmann equation.
