## Research

A couple of themes dominate my work: variational calculus, nonlinear
evolution problems (e.g. porous media flow), stability of elastic
structures, and minimization over (but not of) convex functions.
And much of my mathematical work is related to applications. I've
annotated the publications and grouped them more-or-less accordingly:
There's also a full list
of my publications.
Using a different ordering principle, my direct collaborators at the TU
are
- Giovanni Bonaschi (PhD)
- Saeed Masroor (PhD)
- Patrick van Meurs (PhD)
- Upanshu Sharma (PhD)

Former PhD students are Manh Hong Duong, Michiel Renger, Andriy Hlod,
Yves van Gennip,
Kamyar Malakpoor,
Bob Planqué
and Ignacio Guerra; Matthias Röger
was a postdoc from 2004 to 2006,
Marco Veneroni from 2006 to 2008, Steffen Arnrich from 2010 to 2011, David Bourne and Lucia Scardia from 2010 to 2012, Carlo Mercuri from 2011 to 2013, Kiamars Vafayi from 2012 to 2015, and Agnes Lamacz from 2013 to 2014.

Here is a video of me explaining one of my papers, From a Large-Deviations Principle to the Wasserstein Gradient Flow: A New Micro-Macro Passage, with Stefan Adams, Nicolas Dirr, and Johannes Zimmer:

And another one, this time for a different audience and in Dutch:

## Para-research

Video of a lecture for a broad academic audience about the maths of cylinder buckling - including an experiment! (in Dutch).
