Grinfeld, then, got the Ph.D. degree in applied mathematics at RPI, USA, under the supervision of Marshall Slemrod, working on a problem of phase transitions in gas dynamics. Then, Grinfeld also worked at Heriot-Watt University and Bath and Bristol. Since 1994, Grinfeld has been serving as a Reader at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, University of Strathclyde. Grinfeld's research interests are mainly in differential equations arising in material science and in biomathematics as well as macroeconomic modelling.
