Research Interests

    My research interests are related to Numerical Analysis and Scientific Computing. In recent years, I have focused on design and analysis of highly efficient and robust numerical methods for solving differential equations. In particular, my research work can be characterized by the following keywords:

  • Isogeometric analysis
  • Finite element methods
  • Error estimation and adaptivity
  • Compatible discretization of PDEs
  • Numerical analysis of singular perturbation problems
  • Domain decomposition methods

Research Supervision

    Currently, I am supervising two students:

  • Abdullah Abdulhaque (Ph.D. student)
