- Numerical solutions to PDEs.
- Bifurcation Analysis of nonlinear PDEs
- Liquid crystal problems (Oseen--Frank models)
Currently, I am working on developing robust and efficient solvers for a nonlinear constrained optimization problem deriving from Liquid Crystals with preconditioning techniques. During such processes, I am looking for contructing a robust multigrid algorithm and using augmented Lagrangian methods as potential effective preconditioners.
