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.
