## Research Interests

I have used variational methods and techniques from potential theory, harmonic analysis, and compensated compactness to analyze systems of partial differential and integral equations.
Much of my dissertation work contributes to the theory of a nonlocal model in continuum mechanics known as peridynamics. I have also conducted analysis of systems of hyperbolic conservation laws.
