research interests:

Mathematical Fluid Mechanics

theory of hyperbolic conservation laws

• towards a proper solution concept for the multi-dim. compressible Euler equations

• convex integration, non-uniqueness for the multi-dim. compressible Euler equations

structure preserving numerical schemes for Euler and ideal magnetohydrodynamics

• well-balanced and low Mach schemes for Euler equations with gravity

• genuinely multi-dim. schemes

• structure-preserving compact high-order method method

applications in astrophysics

• numerical schemes for evolving stellar structure and evolution

• simulations of the evolution of the universe including magnetic fields

kinetic equations and plasma, theory & numerics

• multi-species models, existence and qualitative behavior

• numerical schemes for multi-species BGK equations based on a variational procedure

PDE inverse problems, kinetic models in biology with coefficients determined by experimental data

• theory: proving that it is possible to solve certain kinetic PDE inverse problems

• numerics: schemes that determine the coefficients from given experimental data
