In recent years PDE based modeling has become
an important research area in applied mathematics. In our group, we develop and
analyze new PDE models and numerical techniques with cutting edge research problems
in physical sciences. Our main research interests are kinetic modeling of small
scale phenomena, analysis of macro-micro models and high resolution numerical
