Areas of research interest:
Mathematical aspects of materials science: mathematical and numerical analysis as well as numerical simulations of

  • atomistic modelling of fracture and other crystal defects,
  • bottom-up approaches to near-crack-tip plasticity,
  • bottom-up approaches to grain boundaries,
  • geometric modelling of polycrystaline materials,
  • defect nucleation as a bifurcation phenomenon,
  • uncertainty quantification for interatomic potentials.

Optimal Transport theory: entropic regularisation of (unbalanced) optimal transport and associated gradient flows, efficient computation of anisotropic power diagrams.
