Teaching Responsibilities 2018/19:

Term 1: MA912 Analysis for Linear PDEs 

Research Interests:

  • Applied mathematics, in particular socio-economical, life sciences or fluid dynamics applications
  • Inverse problems (parameter estimation and optimization)
  • Stabilisation and (optimal) control of PDEs

My current projects include inverse problems in the context of pedestrian dynamics, the use of feedback controls to stabilise and control the solutions to various thin film flow models, and analysis of systems of interacting diffusions in the mean-field limit.

Here are links to my Google Scholar, ResearchGate and arXiv profiles.
