My primary research interest is in the analysis of differential equations with irregular coefficients. Increasingly, these equations are used in a wide variety of mathematical models in fields as diverse as climate modelling, medical imaging, control theory, and stem-cell research yet the mathematical theory remains insufficiently developed for the requirements of modern scientific research. To address this gap and develop a broad mathematical theory of irregular differential equations my research draws upon the following:
I am particularly interested in problems motivated by fluid dynamics.
I organise the Mathematics Research Seminar at Middlesex.
