Research interests

Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations by using topological and variational methods( sub and supersolutions, bifurcation, critical point theory, topological degree, continuation). He has also some work devoted to reaction-diffusion systems, singular problems and free boundary problems. He is the author of more than 50 papers on these subjects, has attended more than 100 conferences and given more than 300 lectures in this field.
