Research Profile

My primary research interests are in construction and analysis of numerical schemes for solutions of partial differential and integral equations with an emphasis on high-order numerical methods [1,2,3].
I am particularly interested in numerical analysis of problems with random data [4,5]; construction and analysis of efficient automatic integration algorithms, especially for high-dimensional singular integrands [6]; construction and analysis of numerical schemes for variational inequalities, in particular, for contact problems in elasticity [7,8,9].
