I classify myself as a theoretical applied mathematician - a person that studies problems arising from applied sciences (like biological growth and fluid flow) and aims for theoretical results.

My work mainly involves proving mathematical theorems about various models used in applied sciences. These are statements regarding certain properties of solutions to partial differential equations that would be useful for scientists.

Below you can find a brief summary of my research interests and the research projects I am responsible as principal investigator.
