## Personal profile

### Research interests

Qualitative behaviour of solutions to initial boundary value problems for various linear and nonlinear theories in continuum mechanics,including elasticity and Navier-Stokes.
There is especial current interest in uniqueness, dynamic and spatial stability, continuous data dependence (Saint-Venant's principle), and singularities (dislocations).
