Research interests

I am interested in the analysis and numerics of all kinds of partial differential equations arising in real world applications (with an emphasis on fluid dynamics).

  • Newtonian and generalized Newtonian fluid dynamics, incompressible turbulence
  • Fluid structure interaction
  • Fluidic interfaces, multiphase flow, phase transitions
  • Dynamics and equilibrium configurations of biological membranes
  • Nonlinear optics
