Welcome to my webpage! My name is Stavros and I am a fifth year PhD student at the University of Maryland, studying under the supervision of Prof. Jacob Bedrossian.
My research focuses on deterministic and stochastic evolution equations that arise in continuum mechanics, in particular in the study of fluids and plasmas. I am interested in understanding the behavior of various models at large times, often in limiting cases (such as vanishing viscosity or infinite mean free path). Some keywords:
- Fluid Dynamics: stochastic fluids, turbulence, (ir)regularity of weak solutions, inviscid limits
- Kinetic theory: collisionless kinetic theory, weakly collisional limits, magnetized plasmas, stochastic kinetic theory
