Research interest

My research interest is on nonlinear waves. The problem is concerned with a two-dimensional irrotational flow of inviscid and incompressible fluid. The upper free boundary of the fluid, which is also called the free-surface, is deformed by a train of waves. The problem of gravity-capillary waves and flexural-gravity waves are both considered. Gravity and surface tension are present in the former case while surface tension is replaced by the pressure exerted by an elastic sheet in the latter case. Flexural-gravity waves have many applications in the presence of ice sheets in polar regions, e.g. road design, ice breaking and etc.
