My research interest is concerned with nonlinear partial differential equations appearing in fluid mechanics. The current research topic is the equations of the motion of viscous incompressible fluid which has free moving surface. The motion of viscous incompressible fluid is governed by the Navier-Stokes equations, which are not easy to solve because of their nonlinearity. The free moving surface adds another nonlinearity to the problem and the study of it needs more elaborate technique than the problems on fixed domain.
