Research: Sanjeeva Balasuriya

I am interested in problems which lie at the interface between mathematics and its applications. The projects I work on usually emerge directly from physical or biological instances. While using mathematical methods is ideally highly attractive in better understanding underlying mechanisms and their effects, it is often necessary to also use computational methods to investigate problems intractable to analysis, or to supplement theoretical results. I also work on developing and extending mathematical theories, as motivated by applications.
