My research interests are mainly nonlinear partial differential equations and numerical methods for these. I have been particularly interested in systems of nonlinear conservation laws, one ongoing project in this field is the development of numerical methods for magnetohydrodynamics, this is a collaboration with Kenneth Hvistendahl Karlsen, Siddhartha Mishra and Ph.D. student Franz Fuchs. I have also worked on conservation laws with discontinuous coefficients in a variety of applications.
Since my student days, I have been interested in mathematical problems arising in reservoir simulation. There are many practically important and theoretically difficult problems in this area.
I have also been working on various nonlinear "wave type" equations, such as the Camassa-Holm equation and the Degasperis-Procesi equation.
