Yannis G. Kevrekidis elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences

Johns Hopkins faculty member Yannis Kevrekidis has been elected to membership in the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

From his citation: He transformed simulation and analysis of complex, nonlinear transport and reaction processes across multiple time and space scales. His work encompasses algorithms for systematic computation of instabilities and spatiotemporal pattern formation in flow and reacting systems; computer-assisted, data-informed model reduction for control; and a novel equation-free framework that forges together systems engineering, traditional scientific computation and data mining to systematically coarse-grain complex, multiscale phenomena and processes. His work has been consistently integrated with strong experimental collaborations (with G. Ertl, R. Prud'homme, J. Benziger, S. Shvartsman)--and has a growing impact across engineering disciplines, the physical and social sciences, and in applied and computational mathematics.
