Stefanos Aretakis 

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Toronto St. George
and in the Department of Computer and Mathematical Sciences at the University of Toronto Scarborough.

Previously, I was an Assistant Professor at Princeton University (2015-2016) and a
Veblen Research Instructor at Princeton University and the Institute for Advanced Study (2012-2015).

In June 2012, I completed my PhD at the University of Cambridge (Trinity College).
I was unbelievably lucky to have Professor Mihalis Dafermos (Cambridge/Princeton) as my PhD supervisor.

Research Interests

Differential Geometry, Analysis of PDEs, General Relativity

I am interested in problems concerning the mathematical analysis of differential equations in general relativity. Specifically, I work on the stability problem for black holes, on gluing problems for characteristic initial data and on scattering problems for the Einstein equations.

List of publications from Google Scholar.

Springerbrief on ''Dynamics of Extremal Black Holes''.

I would like to acknowledge support through NSF grant DMS-1265538, NSERC grant 502581,
an Alfred P. Sloan Fellowship in Mathematics, the Connaught Fellowship 503071 and an Early
Research Award from the Goverment of Ontario.



Semester program in computational relativity to be held at ICERM/Brown University in Fall 2020.
