Tarek Elgindi

Tarek Elgindi received his Ph.D. from New York University in 2014.

After graduation he received a postdoctoral fellowship form the National Science Foundation to work with the fluids group in the Mathematics Department at Princeton University. Elgindi’s research focuses on the mathematical analysis of various models for incompressible fluids.

In his work Elgindi employs expertise in several areas of modem analysis including the theory of elliptic and dispersive PDE, harmonic analysis, semi group theory, and asymptotic analysis. Elgindi has made recent progress on several challenging theoretical problems of fluid mechanics, including a detailed study of the incompressible Euler equations in scale invariant spaces, and the study of singularity formation in important one dimensional fluid models.
