Shabnam Beheshti is a Senior Lecturer in Mathematics, where she is also the Director of Undergraduate Studies and Athena SWAN Champion.  Her research area is geometric analysis and nonlinear partial differential equations (PDEs) in Mathematical Physics.  Her work has ranged from integrability of harmonic maps in General Relativity, to combinatorial structure in PDEs of Fluid Dynamics.  Recently, she has been using analytic and geometric tools to study the nature of accretion in relativistic hydrodynamics. She is also interested in using conformal methods to better understand PDEs which couple Einstein's Equations to viscous fluids and elastic matter models.

Shabnam holds a BSc from McGill University, MSc from Texas Tech University, and PhD in Mathematics from University of Massachusetts, Amherst.  She has held positions as Visiting Fellow at the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Assistant Professor of Mathematics at Rutgers University, and LMS Grace Chisholm Young Fellow at QMUL.  Her research has been supported by the National Science Foundation (MSF), the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI), and the London Mathematical Society (LMS).
