My research combines techniques in infinitesimal stochastic analysis and classical analysis to study (S)PDEs arising from the dynamics of fluids as well as solvent-solute mixtures of polymeric type. More specifically, I study asymptotic limits to several scaled compressible and incompressible fluid equations that are driven by deterministic and/or random forces. I also analyse well-posedness and regularity results for the Navier-Stokes equations, Euler equations, Fokker-Planck equations and various other variation of these equations.
In summary, my main research interests may be classified under the following:
- Analytical fluid dynamics,
- Analytical material science,
- Singular limit asymptotics,
- Analysis of (stochastic) partial differential equations.
