My research primarily focuses on the derivation and (numerical) analysis of thermodynamically consistent models for complex flow problems. Thereby, I am in particular interested in

  • nonlinear (multi-scale) partial differential equations,
  • homogenization of multiphase flow,
  • (degenerate) fourth order parabolic equations,
  • stochastic partial differential equations.

I am also one of the main developers of the software package EconDrop.
