Research interests
My research field is the mathematical analysis of Partial Differential Equations. These equations arise in mathematical physics, differential geometry, finance, and biology. My focus is on elliptic and parabolic equations, and on the analytical understanding of the regularity, symmetry, and other qualitative properties of their solutions. This often involves the use of geometric tools such as isoperimetric inequalities, whose study is an important part of my research. My main current project concerns a recently flourishing area: reaction problems for fractional diffusions associated to jump or Lévy processes. These are the so called 'anomalous diffusions', well noticed in the last decades in some reaction and biological fronts, as well as in mathematical finance.
