Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am a lecturer in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics, and my research focuses on functional analysis, operator theory and differential equations.  I am interested both in the theoretical aspects and their applications to problems in engineering and science, like non-destructive testing, liquid crystals, networks, quantum mechanics and others.

After having received a PhD from the Vienna University of Technology I did post-docs at the University of Leicester, the University of Bremen and the Vienna University of Technology.  In 2004 I joined the University of Strathclyde.  I was Visiting Professor at the Vienna University of Technology in 2013 and 2014.  Three times I was a Visiting Fellow at the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences.

Research Interests

  • differential operators, in particular elliptic PDOs and differential operators with singular coefficients
  • functions whose values are operators on a Banach space for the study of spectral problems that depend nonlinearly on the eigenvalue parameter
  • block operator matrices, i.e. matrices whose entries are operators between Banach spaces, with applications to systems of differential equations
  • inverse problems: in particular, mathematical models for non-destructive testing with ultrasonic waves, inverse spectral problems for differential equations with singular coefficients
  • operator semigroups and evolution equations, in particular, coagulation-fragmentation equations
  • spaces with indefinite inner products and their use in singular perturbations and inverse spectral theory

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
