Teaching interests:
Undergraduate teaching: Calculus courses for both engineering and science students.
Postgraduate teaching: I enjoy teaching various advanced courses in Real Analysis, Functional Analysis and Differential Equations in connection with Calculus of Variations and Optimization.

Research interests:
My research interests lie in the framework of Calculus of Variations (Geometric Measure Theory), Functional Analysis, Differential equations with applications in Continuum Mechanics. In particular, I am really involved in research on mathematical problems in elasto-plasticity.
