Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing

The research deals with the analysis, development, application of mathematical models for the integration of complex systems. The analysis is conducted using mathematical methods in several fields such as linear algebra, approximation theory, partial differential equations, optimization and control. Solution methods are developed and applied to domains as diverse as (potential and viscous) flow dynamics, (linear and nonlinear) structural analysis, mass transport, heat transfer and in general to multiscale and multiphysics applications.
