Research Interests
Fluid dynamics; partial differential equations; nonlinear analysis.


My research interests deal primarily with the analysis of nonlinear partial differential equations.

The main focus of my research in this field is the application of rigorous mathematical analysis in order to address questions which arise in applied mathematics, with a particular emphasis on the analysis of fluid dynamics.
