Partial differential equations:

  • Analysis: Existence, uniqueness of weak solutions, travelling waves
  • Numerical methods: discretization (FEM/MFEM, finite volumes), convergence, linearization schemes, domain decomposition
  • Applications in porous media flows: unsaturated, two-phase, non-standard models, dynamic capillarity, hysteresis
