Research interests over the years: flows in porous media and all that, nonlinear diffusion, coronal loops of the sun (and other stars), thin film viscous flows, strongly indefinite variational systems, turbulence models, combustion modelling and flame fronts, radiative flame balls, flame speeds, free boundary problems, nonlinear dynamical systems, travelling waves, stability analysis, applications of analytic semigroups, model equations for fronts, singularity formation, geometric flows, turbulent flows, mathematical modelling in physiology, virus control, mathematics and industry, medical applications, resonators in microdevices, and more recently, hurricanes (to appear in SIAM J. Appl. Math.), high performance fibers (to appear in J. Materials Sc) and systems biology: glycolysis, optimization in metabolic pathways and networks, and inevitably these days: machine learning. Applied math is not a subfield.

- Leuk boekje, bijvoorbeeld voor nascholing met wiskundeleraren: meer over wiskunde voor leraar en leerling.
- More in the making: Fundamentals of Analysis. Includes a formulation and proof of the so-called Hard Implicit Function Theorem (Newton's method the hard way) on the occasion of the Abel prize for Nash.
- Wat is TAL?
- Wat is het probleem?
- Filmpje? Chalk talk about the Science paper with the SysBio guys and girls (skip bobo talk and jump to 00.28.40).
