Research Area

My research is in the area of evolution PDEs in fluid dynamics, biology, plasma physics, and complex fluids. In particular, I am interested in well-posedness and regularity of initial value problems with limited regularity. My research area can be summarized as follows:

  • Fluid equations: Navier-Stokes equation, Euler equation, Quasi-geostrophic equation
  • 1D models of fluid equations
  • Coupled equations: Keller-Segel equation, MHD equation
  • Free boundary problems
