I am currently a Research Associate at the Math Department of Imperial College, where I’m working with Darryl Holm. I’m on a research leave from being a Postdoctoral Fellow from the Research Foundation–Flanders (Belgium) and I’m part of the IRSES Geomech project, funded by the EU.

My previous employment can be summarized as follows:

  • Teaching Visitor/Postdoc, Department of Mathematics, University of California, San Diego (2010-2012)
  • Postdoctoral Scholar, Department of Mathematics, Ghent University, Belgium (2010)
  • JSPS Research Fellow, Waseda University, Japan (Fall 2009)
  • Fulbright Postdoctoral Fellow, Control and Dynamical Systems, Caltech (2007-2009)

Research Interests

  • Interactions between fluids and structures, and the geometry of the diffeomorphism group;
  • Variational principles and Dirac structures for classical field theories.
