# Research

### Interests

My research and interests are mainly in numerical analysis and in
scientific computing:

- Numerical analysis:
ordinary differential equations (ODEs) ,
differential-algebraic equations (DAEs),
classical mechanics, symplectic integration,
partial differential equations,
stochastic differential equations,
(optimal) control theory, optimization,
nonlinear equations, approximation theory,
linear algebra, iterative methods.
- Scientific computing:
mechanical systems, electrical systems,
structural mechanics, multibody dynamics,
molecular dynamics, electronic structure calculations,
parallel computation.
- Artificial intelligence, robotics, neural networks.
- Statistics, operations research.

I am a proud VIP member of the very select
Runge-Kutta club
founded by his Highness John Butcher.
### Research projects

I have research projects
with exciting applications and great research
opportunities for mathematicians, numerical analysts, computer scientists,
and engineers.
