Current Fields of Research

My research interests are in calculus of variations and nonlinear partial differential equations and are motivated by applications to various problems in physics and materials science.
My recent work is focused on variational techniques as they apply to contemporary problems in continuum mechanics and materials sciences: it includes the mathematical study of magnetic materials, liquid crystals and thin structures.
