Ph.D., Department of Mathematics, University of Stuttgart, 1993.
I work on applied dynamical systems and partial differential equations posed on extended domains. In recent years, my research has focused on the dynamics of patterns, coherent structures, and nonlinear waves, which I investigate using a mixture of analytical and geometric dynamical-systems techniques together with numerical computations.
