# Research

I am interested in the analysis and numerical approximation of nonlinear partial differential equations emerging in fluid dynamics, multi-phase flows, complex fluids and mathematical biology. I work on the development of efficient and convergent numerical methods for these phenomena.

Besides that, I have worked on uncertainty quantification using multilevel Monte Carlo methods for nonlinear evolution equations. More recently, I have become interested in problems related to turbulence and statistical descriptions of solutions of systems of conservation laws.
