Rui Liang, since 2020


Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations and Harmonic Analysis. In particular, the study of nonlinear dispersive PDEs such as nonlinear Schrödinger equations, nonlinear wave equations, and the KdV equation by using techniques from PDEs, Harmonic Analysis, and Probability theory.

Mainly, well-posedness (existence, uniqueness, and stability of solutions) in both deterministic and probabilistic settings, existence of invariant measures, Strichartz estimates in different settings, etc. Also, interested in Fourier restriction theory and decoupling theory.
