I am interested in a variety of processes involving interfacial
instabilities and pattern formation, as well as more fundamental issues
involving the process of crystallization. My
current and recent projects include
dendritic crystal growth,
The amplitude of sidebranches in the dendritic crystal
growth of ammonium chloride, by
A. Dougherty, July 2012.
Measurement of the Capillary Length for the Dendritic
Growth of Ammonium Chloride, by
A. Dougherty and F. Stinner, June 2012.
Identification of radius-vector functions of interface
evolution for star-shaped crystal growth, by
Yifan Zhao, Daniel Coca, Stephen A. Billings, Yuzhu
Guo, Rile I. Ristic, Lucy L. De Matos, Andrew
Mathematical and Computer Modelling of
Dynamical Systems, January 12, 2012
high-pressure phase equilibria, and
interfacial motion in a porous medium.
I have given a
variety of talks and presentations.
