Research Interests

  • Nonlinear partial differential equations (regularity, existence, numerical analysis)
  • Fluid dynamics (compressible fluids, non-Newtonian Fluids, Fluid-structure interaction)
  • Analysis of evolutionary systems (intrinsic geometry, Bochner spaces)
  • Calculus of variations (non-standard growth, rate independent systems)
  • Theory of finite element methods (convergence rates, adaptivity methods)
