Tarek Elgindi
Assistant Professor of Mathematics
Ph.D. Mathematics, New York University, 2014
B.S. Mathematics, University of Wisconsin-Madison, 2009
Dr. 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. Dr. Elgindi's research focuses on the mathematical analysis of various models for incompressible fluids.

In his work Dr. 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. In the short time since his PhD, Dr. Elgindi has already made important progress on a number of the most 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.

Dr. Elgindi has a reasonably well developed teaching record receiving excellent or very good student ratings and is expected contribute positively to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at UCSD.
