I am an applied mathematician with a PhD in Physics. The bulk of my work is theoretical and numerical, but I always look for experimental applications of my results. My research interests can be put in 2 categories: - Turbulence, extreme events and finite-time singularities in fluids and general nonlinear systems. - Nonlinear energy-transfer mechanisms in wave systems such as precession resonance and dynamical systems approach. I have applied my work successfully to many real-life systems, including: - Free-surface water waves driven by gravity. - Drift waves in plasmas and planetary Rossby waves in the atmosphere and oceans. - Ideal inviscid fluids, classical fluids and magneto-hydrodynamics. - Quantum superfluids. More recently I have collaborated in Industrial Mathematics and Mathematical Biology, in the context of European Study Groups with Industry.
