I am interested in problems concerning nonlinear partial differential equations and applications to macroscopic systems such as simple fluids, nematic liquid crystals, spin systems and random networks.
My research points towards the development of a recent approach to the thermodynamics and statistical mechanics of mean-field models based on the theory of integrable conservation laws.
- phase behaviour of biaxial nematics subject to external fields
- statistical thermodynamics of van der Waals fluids
