Research Information

I am a 5th year PhD student in Applied and Interdisciplinary Mathematics, as well as in Scientific Computing. I am interested in numerical simulations of fluid-structure interactions. My current research is mostly computational and it focuses on the dynamics of extensible membranes in inviscid flow. Prior to this, I worked on the leapfrogging motion of vortex pairs and on modeling the manufacture of microstructured optical fibers.
