Irfan Glogić

I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Faculty of Mathematics of the University of Vienna. I am currently running a stand-alone research project funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF). Formerly, I was employed on a project by Professor Roland Donninger.

Before coming to Vienna, I obtained my doctorate in Mathematics from The Ohio State University. My advisor was Professor Ovidiu Costin.

Before going to USA, I completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Research Interests

I am interested in nonlinear partial differential equations, primarily the ones of dispersive and parabolic type. At the moment, I am focused on the existence and stability of blowup in supercritical models. This necessitates tools from different areas of mathematics, and as a consequence I also work in differential geometry, spectral theory, and harmonic analysis.
