Current research areas:

Pseudodifferential calculi, for manifolds with
boundary and with spectral parameters. Geometric analysis.
Asymptotic trace expansions of parameter-dependent operators, the geometric
interpretation of the coefficients. The logarithmic and
nonlocal terms. The noncommutative
residue and the canonical trace. The zeta
coefficients. Spectral boundary conditions in Brane theory. Applications of pseudodifferential methods to Navier-Stokes
problems. Extension theory and boundary problems for
elliptic operators. Krein resolvent formulas. Nonsmooth
boundary value problems. Krein-like extensions (without regularity). Spectral
asymptotics for problems with jumps. Fractional Laplacians, heat kernels, regularity properties on a
domain.
