- Research Interests:
I am interested in non-local 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 non-local
non-linear 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 backward-porous media equation.
