My research program concerns the study of boundary value problems for quasilinear elliptic equations, involving the Euclidean or the Minkowski mean curvature operator. Namely, the following problems have been treated:

1. the periodic problem associated with the one-dimensional prescribed curvature equation in the Euclidean space. The equation arises when dealing with capillarity phenomena.

2. The homogeneous Dirichlet problem associated with an anisotropic prescribed mean curvature equation in the Euclidean space. Such a problem has been recently proposed as a model for the geometrical description of the human cornea.

3. The homogeneous Dirichlet problem associated with a prescribed mean curvature equation in the Minkowski space. The problem is of great interest in general relativity and differential geometry.

The techniques used are topological or variational, in particular they rely on degree theory or on critical point theory, respectively.
