As a modern applied mathematician, Dr. Moore’s research incorporates a range of subdisciplines, including PDEs, asymptotic analysis, numerical computation, and rigorous real & complex analysis. Specifically, most of Dr. Moore’s recent work focuses on modeling fluid-structure interactions that arise in biology, geophysics, or other applications. By their nature, such systems tend to be highly dynamic and nonlinear, necessitating the so-called hybrid approach that he advocates. In this approach, a sound theoretical foundation is combined with advantageous asymptotic reductions and cutting-edge computational tools to address open questions or make new predictions. Problems like these are not only of interest to applied mathematicians, but also to physicists, biologists, environmental scientists, and engineers, which often leads to fruitful collaborations.
