Research interests
I am a member of the Integrable Systems group in the Applied Mathematics department.
Integrable systems are equations, or collections of equations, which, even though they can be very complicated, behave in a particularly nice and regular way. It may seem that they are a very special class of equations, but in fact they pop up time after time in reallife situations, especially in physics (one of the most wellknown examples appears in the study of shallow water waves), but also in economics and numerical analysis. I study in particular discrete integrable systems, i.e., integrable systems that live on grids or lattices.
My current research is to apply the tools of geometry in order to better understand the structure of discrete integrable systems, and to develop the theory of their associated Lagrangian structures.
