My research interests are in the field of modern theory of integrable systems. In particular I am interested in the problem of recognition of integrable PDEs (integrability tests) as well as the problem of classifying integrable systems.

Topics of my research are:

  • Classification of integrable nonlinear partial differential equations and differential-difference equations,
  • Integrability tests:
  • Symmetry approach,
  • Perturbative symmetry approach in the symbolic representation,
  • Multidimensional dispersionless and dispersive integrable systems and dispersive deformations.
  • EPSRC Fellowship 2006-2009
  • MAA150 – Mathematical Methods I.
  • MAB142 – Vector Spaces.
  • Director of Studies
