My research is concerned with the design and the analysis of numerical methods for the approximation of partial differential equations (PDEs), with a particular focus on finite element methods (FEMs). My scientific interests range from theoretical questions in numerical mathematics (e.g., a posteriori error analysis, convergence and optimality of adaptive finite element schemes) and uncertainty quantification (stochastic Galerkin FEM for PDEs with parametric or uncertain input) to the design and analysis of effective approximation methods for (nonlinear) PDEs in materials science and engineering (e.g., in micromagnetics, quantum mechanics, and liquid crystal theory).
