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