I am interested in structure formation in soft materials -- diblock copolymers -- a topic I am investigating under the supervision of Prof. Endre Suli. In particular, I am studying the Ohta--Kawasaki free energy functional and its related dynamic equation (by gradient flow), and its coupling to the Navier--Stokes equations. To complete the physical model, we will couple these two models to a temperature equation and/or a model for visco-elasticity (Oldroyd-B).
The work spans a combination of theory (well posedness, numerical and asymptotic analysis) and practice (Matlab/CUDA code). One of the end goals of the work is a simulation tool which could be used to explore manufacturing techniques for, for instance, micro-filtration systems and organic solar cells.
