RESEARCH

INTERESTS

Harmonic analysis, partial differential equations, geometric analysis, geometric computation

My primary research interests lie in harmonic analysis, partial differential equations, and geometric analysis. For example, Strichartz estimates for the solution of various evolution equations, including dispersive equations and transport equations. For dispersive equations, such estimates are directly related to questions in the context of the Stein restriction conjecture, which is a central problem concerning the Fourier transform in euclidean harmonic analysis, and enjoys further connections to problems in geometric analysis, such as the Kakeya conjecture and, via the multilinear perspective, to various generalisations of the Brascamp-Lieb inequality. Recently, I have been particularly interested in establishing optimal versions of such estimates, seeking sharp constants and information about the nature of maximising input functions when they exist, for example, via heat flow methods. In a different direction, I am also interested in geometric computation, including the analysis of Bézier curves and subdivision of curves and surfaces.
