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)

Primus Research Grant

The Primus Research Grant "The interactions of fluids and solids--On a systematic analysis theory for partial differential equations on variable domains in the context of fluid structure interactions" granted by the Charles University will initiate in January 2019. The project is granted for three years with a possible extension of two more years.

For this project we offer two postdoc positions. Please see here the announcement. Moreover, 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.
