My research is in the field of applied mathematics, focuses on mathematical physics models of metamaterials, optical systems and Bose-Einstein condensates, where the physical settings are modeled by nonlinear partial differential equations. My research mainly revolves around the derivation of equations, their Hamiltonian structure, existence, stability and dynamics of the solitary wave solutions. Methods employed include asymptotics, variational approximations, rigorous analysis, numerical analysis, as well as scientific computing.
