Research interests
Working on a problem related to the stability of hurricanes...during hurricane Sandy...

Most of my work has been devoted to the mathematical analysis of PDEs or variational problems arising from fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, plasma physics or mathematical biology. The remainder of my work is in computational physics. Roughly speaking, it can be divided into one of four categories:
 Mixing and stability in fluids and plasmas;
 calculus of variations and energydriven pattern formation;
 local and global theory for the PatlakKellerSegel (PKS) model and its variants;
 scientific computing with a focus on moving or irregular geometry and computational fluid dynamics (CFD)
