Short presentation

I am interested in numerical methods for solving partial differential equations. In particular, I work on finite element methods for equations with multiscale features. These equations arise in many interesting applications, e.g., when simulating physical behavior in heterogeneous media like composites and porous materials, in the study of metamaterials, in quantum physics, and much more!

Keywords: numerical analysis finite element methods partial differential equations multiscale modeling
