Research Activities

The goal of our study is to understand the mechanism of nonlinear phenomena from the mathematical viewpoint, using mathematical modeling, numerical simulation and mathematical analysis. For example, we are studying on the motion of droplets and particles, a chemical reaction and a cell dynamics.
