Grigorios A. Pavliotis is Professor of Applied Mathematics at the Department of Mathematics at Imperial College. His main research interests lie in the areas of stochastic differential equations and diffusion processes, nonequilibrium statistical mechanics and homogenization theory for partial differential equations and stochastic differential equations. He is particularly interested in the development of analytical, computational and statistical techniques for multiscale stochastic systems, in time-dependent statistical mechanics and kinetic theory and in the analysis and development of sampling techniques in high dimensions. Current research projects include inference and control for multiscale systems, the development of computational techniques for calculating transport coefficients, homogenization for multiscale diffusion processes and sampling techniques in molecular dynamics.
