Geometry of Partial Differential Equations
Personal home page:

I work in differential geometry and the application of geometry to the study of partial differential equations. Specifically, my work has focused on conservation laws, Backlund transformations, intermediate equations, and sub-Finsler geometry with applications to control theory.
