My research interests focus on various natural phenomena which pertain to continuum mechanics and statistical physics.
In particular, I am interested in the following fields:
- Laplacian and Poisson growth– Developing mathematical tools and understanding pattern formation and growth mechanisms in Laplacian and Poisson fields.
- Granular-fluid flow – Investigating the interaction between hydrodynamic forces and granular materials.
- Evolution of ramified networks – Understanding the evolution and complexity of the ramified structure of channel networks.
- The origin of life – Developing the complex dynamical model that explains the rise of atmospheric oxygen 500 millions years ago.
