Overview


I am a geometric analyst.  I am interested in partial differential equations and differential geometry, in particular geometric evolution equations, such as surface diffusion flow, Helfrich flow, Willmore flow, and mean curvature flow.

Subfields that I have work in include


 - Calculus of variations and the study of functionals of submanifolds (such as the area functional, Willmore functional, Helfrich functional, ...)

 - Local and global differential geometry

 - Higher order elliptic and parabolic partial differential equations on manifolds
