 Specialties:

Analysis
Applied Math
 Research Interests:
I am interested in nonlocal partial differential equation.
 I have studied an hyperbolic equation with time delay and proven that the solution has some remarkable parabolic behavior.
 I have proven some existence results about a class of nonlocal
nonlinear partial differential equation which describe aggregation
phenomena. These type of aggregation equations have been used for
modeling population dynamic and aggregation of nano particles. They
also give an approximation to backwardporous media equation.
