Short presentation

Research interests:

  • Nonlinear partial differential equations
  • Fluid dynamics, fluid-structure interactions
  • Calculus of variations
  • Theory of Numerics for PDEs
  • Analysis of evolutionary non-linear PDEs

Further, I am the head of the Centre of analysis and numerics for fluid-structure interactions at Charles University. The research focus on the mathematics for the interactions between (elastic) solids and (viscous) fluids.

Keywords: fluid dynamics analysis solid-liquid interfaces partial differential equations solid-fluid and heat interactions
