KOUMATOS Konstantinos

As of October 2014, I have been working as a postdoc in mathematics at the Gran Sasso Science Institute. 
My research interests lie in the calculus of variations and nonlinear PDE, where I am particularly interested in problems arising in the mechanics of solids and materials science, especially phase transitions. These include abstract mathematical considerations but also problems strongly linked to experiments.
Prior to my current appointment, between 2012-2014,I held a postdoctoral position at the Oxford Centre for Nonlinear PDE,  University of Oxford where I also completed my PhD in 2012 under the supervision of Prof. John Ball.
