Working on a problem related to the stability of hurricanes...during hurricane Sandy...
Most of my work has been devoted to the mathematical analysis of PDEs or variational problems arising from fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, plasma physics or mathematical biology. The remainder of my work is in computational physics. Roughly speaking, it can be divided into one of four categories:
My research is currently funded by an NSF CAREER grant, Applied Mathematics grant DMS-1462029, and a Sloan Fellowship.
- Stability and mixing in fluids and plasmas;
- calculus of variations and energy-driven pattern formation;
- local and global theory for the Patlak-Keller-Segel (PKS) model and its variants;
- scientific computing with a focus on moving or irregular geometry and computational fluid dynamics (CFD)

Seminars and current topics courses
- Fall 2015: Stochastic fluid mechanics reading course; we are mostly working through the book on 2D stochastically force Navier-Stokes by Kuksin and Shirikyan. Email me or Michele Coti Zelati...Next semester we will likely work through Hairer and Mattingly (and the works that led up to this one).
- Spring 2015: WiPs seminar: joint with the MFD group in the Courant institute at NYU, we are currently running a seminar on waves in plasma. The page can be found here ! Email Lise-Marie or myself if you would like more information, or simply show up at the seminar at CSCAMM or Courant (depending on your physical location).
I am now part of the Applied Mathematics, Statistics and Scientific Computation (AMSC) program!
If you are a graduate or undergraduate student interested in finding an REU project or PhD adviser, feel free to contact me and perhaps we can find something. I am open to advising students interested in the analysis of PDE as well as students also interested in doing some computational PDEs. Likely topics will be focused in some aspect of fluid mechanics or kinetic theory, tailored by the student interests, my interests, and our mutual expertises!
