Zarnescu, Arghir Dani

Ikerbasque Research Professor

Applied Analysis

Mazarredo, 14. 48009 Bilbao Basque Country - Spain


My research focuses on the analytical study of fundamental models from condensed matter physics. After graduating from the University of Chicago, under the supervision of Prof. Peter Constantin, with a thesis on polymeric fluids, I moved to Oxford, for 5 years, working under the mentorship of Prof. John M. Ball, on variational theories of liquid crystals. After that I moved away from Oxford, and developed my independent directions of research, while at the University of Sussex, as a lecturer, for 5 years. Since 2016 I have been working as an Ikerbasque Research Professor in BCAM, as a research-leader of the Applied Analysis, while also holding a part-time position at the "Simion Stoilow" Institute of Mathematics, in Bucharest, Romania.
