Research interests

I have been working on nonlinear motion of water waves and floating bodies from the point of view of fluid dynamics, numerical analysis and dynamical system theory. It is known that nonlinearities in the boundary conditions at the water surface or the restoring forces of a floating body produce some interesting phenomena such as breaking waves, soliton, chaos and so on. I have studied on some fundamental problems related to these nonlinear phenomena (see selected publications).
