Senior Lecturer, Imperial College London

My research interests are focused on partial differential equations, with emphasis on infinite-dimensional dynamical systems, fluid dynamics and nonlocal equations. Here are my MathSciNet and Google Scholar footprints. Most of my papers are also available on the arXiv preprint server (these though may not be the latest versions of the papers). A few of them are also on ResearchGate.
