Research Interests

My research area is the study of partial differential equations, my particular interest concerns the analysis of problems motivated by applications in Physics and Biology. In particular, I am interested in the study of models of cellular aggregation induced by chemotaxis. In recent times I became interested in the study of aggregation of biological organisms induced by nondiffusive cell to cell interactions.

I am also interested in the study of kinetic equations with particle fluxes between the different regions of the phase space characterizing the system.
