Scientific interests

My research focuses on the analysis of partial differential equations, usually associated to problems from fluid mechanics, where I mainly study questions of existence and the asymptotic behavior of solutions. For the investigation of strong solutions, I combine tools from harmonic analysis and linear operator theory with perturbation methods. I am also interested in generalized solution concepts for nonlinear PDEs, the examination of which requires methods from nonlinear functional analysis.
