Research interests: Rearrangements of functions, and variational problems, especially those arising in theory of ideal fluids; also the theory of convex sets. Most recently, applications of the theory of transport equations to the stability of steady vortices and to free-surface waves in the presence of vorticity.

Here are some recent publications.


The South West Regional PDE Winter School 2013 was held at the University of Bath 3rd-4th January.
Workshop: Variational and Topological Methods and Water Waves. University of Bath, 14-16 May 2009.

Workshop: Optimal Transportation, Transport Equations & Hydrodynamics. ICMS, Edinburgh, 11-15 July 2005.

An Analysis Day for research students was held in Bath on 11th May 2011.
