### Research interests

**- Complex Heterogeneous Multiphase Systems (CHMSs)**: Applying *physical/variational and thermodynamic principles* together with *mathematical analysis* for the *reliable and systematic description of complex processes in real world/applications* such as fuel cells, batteries, supercapacitors, desalination devices, solar cells, biofilm formation in porous and strongly heterogeneous environments, fluid and multiphase flow in porous media, and social and economic interactions such as opinion dynamics, growth, and energy.

**- Partial Differential Equations (PDEs): **Using the tools from *calculus of variations* and *functional analysis* for the better understanding and justification of physical formulations in CMSs. Studying *dynamics* by extending *gradient flow* formulations towards more *realistic evolution of physical systems*. This often involves the reformulation of problems in a relaxed sense such as *weak or distributional formulations*. Obtaining *effective formulations* by *asymptotic analysis* such as *homogenisation theory* and *renormalisation group theory*.

**- Numerical Analysis and Computational Science: **Developing *efficient and reliable numerical schemes* for CMSs by proving *convergence*, rigorously establish *physical properties of discrete solutions* and the subsequent validation by computational experiments. Of general interest is also the development of computational schemes for high-dimensional problems.

**- Thermodynamics, Stochastics, Information, Randomness, and Random Media: **Studying and analysing nonequilibrium thermodynamic systems for consistency. Investigating the *appearance of randomnes*s in seemingly deterministic physical systems which generally appear as *PDE + Noise* formulations. Another important topic is the reliable and systematic description of Random Media using statistical data, the theory of *stochastic processes*, and *geometry*.
