Her research area is the 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. Dr Beheshti holds a BSc from McGill University, MSc from Texas Tech University, and a PhD in Mathematics from the 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. Dr Beheshti is a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (HEA), and a member of the American Mathematical Society (AMS), London Mathematical Society (LMS) and the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM). Her research has been supported by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI), the Institute for Advanced Study Women and Mathematics Programme (IAS-WAM) and the London Mathematical Society (LMS).TeachingI have taught and/or directed tutorials for a variety of subjects across the institutions at which I have worked, including Mathematical Reasoning/Proofs Calculus I/II Multivariable Calculus/Differential Geometry Linear Algebra Introductory Statistics Analysis I/II Complex Analysis Ordinary/Partial Differential Equations (ODEs/PDEs) Topology Mathematical Relativity Reading Courses/Honours Research Seminars (e.g., DNA Topology, Relativity, Minimal Surfaces) Most recently, I have taught Complex Variables (MTH5103) and Relativity (MTH6132) here at Queen Mary.ResearchResearch Interests:mathematical relativity, geometric analysis, partial differential equations, differential geometry, relativistic fluids, complex analysisPublications Beheshti S, Gasperín E (2016).
