My interests lie at the interface between high-performance computation, pattern formation and nonlinear phenomena. I am interested in instabilities in fluid, chemical and biological systems and how best to understand these through efficient direct numerical computation. I am currently devoting a lot of attention to a singularity in the Euler equations and to the onset of turbulence in shear flows. Other key words describing my research are: large-scale computation, mathematical modeling, hydrodynamic stability, transition to turbulence, reaction-diffusion equations, excitable media, symmetry-breaking bifurcations, and spatio-temporal chaos.
