Applied Math
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.
