Research interests

  • Nonlinear partial differential equations (existence, uniqueness, regularity, numerical analysis)
  • Fluid dynamics (compressible fluids, non-Newtonian Fluids, Fluid-structure interaction)
  • Calculus of variations (non-standard growth, rate independent systems)
  • Theory of Numerics for PDEs (time schemes, convergence rates, Galerkin methods)
  • Analysis of evolutionary non-linear PDEs (variable domains, intrinsic geometry)

Project on the interaction of fluids and solids

Funding for the project is provided by a Junior Grant of the Czech Science Foundation and a Primus Research Programme of Charles University. The funding is for three years with a possible extension of two more years of the Primus grant.

For this project we have three postdoc positions and two PhD positions. Postdocs and students that are looking for a PhD position or a master theses related to the subject are invited to contact Barbora Benesova or myself.


Students that are interested in a Bachelor, Master or PhD thesis can find here a list of subjects.
