Analysis of Partial Differential Equations: Fluid Mechanics: properties of mild and weak solutions to the 3D NavierStokes equations, 2D and QG turbulence (in particular dissipation of energy and enstrophy), vanishing viscosity limit.
 Elasticity: wellposedness and regularity of anisotropic elastostatics in generalized polyhedral domains (with applications to the Finite Element Method), quasistatic crack formation, wave propagation in anisotropic elastic media.
 Inverse Problems: unique determination of elastic moduli from dynamic displacementtraction boundary measurements in anisotropic elastic media (specifically for transversely isotropic media), transient elastography, option pricing.
