- Structure-preserving discretization, finite element exterior calculus
- multilevel preconditioning
- applications in multiphysics problems (plasma, MHD), continuum mechanics and relativity
My current research is focused on the structure-preserving discretizations and multilevel preconditioning for partial differential equations, particularly on the finite element exterior calculus (construction of finite elements, high order methods etc.).
I work on problems raised in coupled multiphysics systems (plasma and magnetohydrodynamcis), continuum mechanics and relativity. Nonlinearity and complex differential structures are usually present in these problems.
Besides discretizations of PDEs, I also have an interest in discrete theories of physical and geometric/topological structures, and the relation between them.
