Research summary

I am an applied mathematician mainly working with partial differential equations, and specifically with tools of kinetic theory. I am interested in collective dynamics, decision making and self-organization in complex systems coming from biology and social sciences. The methods I use combine analysis, asymptotic theory and multiscale numerical techniques. My earlier interests were in plasma physics, rarefied gas dynamics and semiconductor modeling.
