My main interest is in Partial Differential Equations and Harmonic Analysis.

Here is my cv.

Here are recent papers to get an idea of what I have been working on in recent years.

If you want to learn more about dispersive equation check the following sites: Dispersive Wiki , webpage on Dispersive Equations
