Grigorios Fournodavlos


I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Laboratoire Jacques-Louis Lions of the Sorbonne Université, working with Jacques Smulevici. Prior to my position in Paris, I was a research associate at the University of Cambridge, where my mentor was Mihalis Dafermos. I obtained my PhD from the University of Toronto, as a student of Spyros Alexakis [to access my thesis click here].

Curriculum Vitae

Research interests: Analysis, partial differential equations, differential geometry. More particularly, I am interested in the mathematical analysis of differential equations with a geometric background, like the Einstein equations in the context of the classical theory of general relativity (GR). One of my main goals is to understand the nature of singularities that are typically found in the interior of black holes or at the Big Bang.

GR in Paris: A regular GR seminar is hosted at LJLL, the schedule can be found here, along with more informal working group meetings. Everyone is welcome to join our sessions, for more information please consult our group site.

JoMaReC: A new, monthly, joint online mathematical relativity colloquium. To receive notifications for upcoming colloquia, you are invited to subscribe to our newsletter.
