I am interested in developing mathematical models for problems from industrial applications or science. The analysis of these models very often
involves partial differential equations. In particular I am working in the homogenization of partial differential equations and multiscale systems.
In my PhD thesis I have considered the problem of Ostwald ripening in a
gallium arsenide crystal including bulk stresses and surface tension. This has application in the production of semi-conductor wavers as performed by Freiberger Compound Materials.
At the moment I am working on the modelling of small channels in PEM fuel cells and the analysis and simulation of the resulting system
of partial differential equations with a free boundary. This is joint work with Prof. Dr. Arian Novruzi and Prof. Dr. Peter Berg, supported by Toyota Research Institute of North America (TRI-NA).
