Research interests and publications

Research Areas:

My research is in the field of nonlinear Partial Differential Equations (PDEs), with particular focus on entropy methods for systems of evolutionary PDEs with degenerate, cross-, and nonlocal diffusion. I am also interested in the derivation and analysis of mathematical models for chemically reacting fluid mixtures.
