Personal profile

Research interests

My main interests are in the mathematical analysis of free boundary and interface problems arising in continuum theories. These are nonlinear partial differential equations (PDE) problems set on a unknown evolving domain moved by the unknown velocity of the fluid. They arise in different physical contexts: compressible Euler equations in gas dynamics, incompressible Euler equations in fluid dynamics, interaction between a fluid phase and an elastic body. The question of the well-posedness in Sobolev spaces for these problems is an outstanding question in PDE analysis, as geometric quantities linked to the unknown domain are here a leading order term.
