Research Interest:
Partial differential equations, geometric measure theory, variational method
Research Activities:
I study nonlinear partial differential equations which appear in physics, chemistry and geometry using various methods in geometric measure theory. Since nonlinearity requires case by case techniques so the grand unified theory does not exist. On the other hand, there always exist indivisual beauty in each important problem and joy of finding it is my driving force for research. Recently, I have been studying phase separation interfaces arising phase field model and various curvature flow problem associated with them.
