You can find information about my junior research group "Stability and Instability in Fluids and Materials" in the CRC 1173 on its project page.
Next term we will offer a seminar on microstructures in materials and fluids (joint with Xian Liao). A first meeting to assign talks will be held online on September 30.
If you are interested in the seminar, please send an email to christian.zillinger(a)kit.edu
|Winter Semester 2020/21||Seminar: Microstructure in materials and fluid dynamics||Seminar|
My research interests are in partial differential equations motivated by physical problems in particular fluid dynamics and material sciences and include:
- Mixing as a (de)stabilizing mechanism in fluids and inviscid damping.
- Cascades of resonances and instabilities in fluids and plasmas.
- Convex integration and microstructures in materials. Rigidity and flexibility.
- Vortex filaments.
- Magnetic fluids.
- Partial dissipation in the Boussinesq equations.
I obtained my PhD under the supervision of Herbert Koch at the University of Bonn and have been an assistant professor (NTT) at the University of Southern California and a postdoctoral fellow at BCAM.
