My research interest includes the numerical analysis of partial differential equations and applied dynamical systems. In particular, I am interested in:

  • Numerical methods for partial differential equations
    • Nonlinear Schrödinger equations
    • Structure-preserving time integration
    • Finite element methods
    • Eigenvalue problems
  • Analysis of nonlinear waves in evolution equations
    • Dynamics of patterns
    • Stability and existence of nonlinear waves
    • Spectral analysis
    • Numerical computation of nonlinear waves
