My research concerns numerical and theoretical methods of dynamical systems. Recent research includes

  • Period-doubling cascades and chaos
  • Quasiperiodicity
  • Turing instabilities in reaction-diffusion equations with local and nonlocal terms
  • Rigorous computation
  • Spinodal decomposition and nucleation for Cahn-Hilliard and diblock copolymer type equations. See Thomas Wanner’s pages on the phase separation phenomena of spinodal decomposition and nucleation. Here’s a 3D print of my research.
