In my current research I am studying, under the supervision of Andrea Braides, the derivation of continuum theories from discrete systems in a variational Framework using methods from geometric measure theory and methods involving multiscales. Such models can be useful to describe composite Materials, Nanomaterials, such as carbon nanotubes, but also to justify certain assumptions in the continuum theory. My research interests range among calculus of variations, geometric measure theory, material science and partial differential equations.
