General Topics

My general research interest lies in Dynamical Systems with a focus on bifurcation theory and related numerical algorithms, and mathematical modelling with a clinical or biological aspect. Specifically, treating stroke and epilepsy is still a challenge. Models may explain phenomena and identify key parameters identifying effective therapeutic targets or neuromodulation.
