Applied Math
Research Interests: Dynamical Systems, Probability

My research deals with the study of limit theorems of processes that explain the macroscopic behavior of systems appearing in applications: water waves, dynamical systems, biology.

Areas of Interest:

Dynamical Systems


Functional limit theorems, Random dynamical systems, ergodic theory.
