    Project 'Excitation fronts in the cyclohexanedione-BZ system on curved surfaces' as part of the Research Unit 301 'Interface Dynamics in Pattern Formation' of the German Science Foundation (DFG). (EN301/2-1, ~ 15%)


My research focuses on the interdisciplinary field of macroscopic spatio-temporal pattern formation and nonlinear phenomena in heterogeneous and/or nonplanar excitable systems. I am investigating the propagative properties of, for example, fronts and spirals on curved surfaces and the effect of various illumination patterns with a tabletop chemical model system - the Belousov-Zhabotinsky reaction.
