The main areas of my research are wave propagation problems in periodic composites, elastic properties of periodic composites, problems involving multiple scales. My current research interests are:

  • Rigorous analysis of problems in continuum mechanics;
  • Classical and non-classical homogenisation of differential equations and integral functionals;
  • Asymptotic analysis of problems involving scale interaction and singularly perturbed problems;
  • Spectral problems in PDEs;
  • Wave propagation in periodic media, metamaterials.
