## Areas of interest

My main interests are in the areas of PDE and numerical analysis, with applications in computational electromagnetics and micromagnetics. Specifically, I work on the development and analysis of numerical methods for exterior scattering problems, including FEM and integral equation methods. I am also interested in the use of computational techniques in material science and biology. Apart from this, I enjoy using mathematics to solve real-world problems wherever they arise.
