    About

    Personal Statement

    My main research interests include computational mathematics, computational science, non-linear waves in regimes of self-organised synchronisation (excitable and oscillatory systems), asymptotic theory of spiral waves, wave-particle duality of dissipative vortices, computer modelling for cardiology, and High Performance Computing.
