Research Presentations

My main research interests are in existence, stability, and global dynamics of nonlinear waves in dispersive wave equations, lattice differential equations, and diffusion-advection equations. These topics involve aplied harmonic analysis, PDE theory, spectral analysis, dynamical systems, asymptotic analysis, numerical methods. Slides of presentations at conferences and seminars are available in the reverse chronological order.
