Profile

My research field is mathematical analysis of nonlinear partial differential equations related to fluid mechanics, such as the Navier-Stokes equations and vorticity equations. In particular, my interest is to give the mathematical description for the behavior of solutions to those equations when the Reynolds number is high, where the solutions often exhibit typical structures or properties such as the boundary layer and the enhanced dissipation due to the interaction between the action of the viscosity and the nonlinearity.
