 Research Activities

Research focus is on using variational techniques to investigate,
both analytically and numerically, solutions to nonlinear partial
differential equations. The target problems often include constraints
and involve the presence of free boundaries, for which we use
minimizing movements to analyze and compute solutions. Applications
of our research include simulating droplet and bubble motions, as well
as in developing numerical methods.  Papers:
