Rita Ferreira

I am a Research Scientist in the Computer, Electrical and Mathematical Sciences & Engineering Division (CEMSE) of King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST). I am a member of Prof. Diogo Gomes's Group Non-linear PDEs & Viscosity Solutions Research Group @ KAUST.


My research interests lie in the areas of Partial Differential Equations, Continuum Mechanics, Calculus of Variations, and Homogenization. My research activities have been focused on asymptotic analysis using variational methods of dimension reduction and homogenization problems. Currently, I am also interested in the mathematical study of problems in imaging processing and in mean-field games.
