Research Interests

Galaxy evolution

  • physical processes ceasing star formation
  • gas content of local galaxies

Numerical methods

  • development of spectral methods
  • application of spectral methods to discontinuous problems:
    • improvement and application of edge detection techniques
    • treatment of dynamically developing discontinuities
