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:
- long-time behaviour of the 2D Euler equations and the Vlasov equations of plasma physics, specifically inviscid damping and Landau damping;
- calculus of variations and energy-driven pattern formation;
- local and global theory for the Patlak-Keller-Segel (PKS) model and its variants;
- scientific computing with a focus on moving or irregular geometry and computational fluid dynamics (CFD)
