Here is a word cloud created from the titles and abstracts of my papers using wordle. The most common words in these abstracts are displayed here, with font size related to frequency.

I work in dynamical systems. Dynamical systems theory is an active and exciting area of modern mathematics which provides an abstract formalism for studying systems evolving in time and/or space. It is a powerful tool to unveil general and universal mechanisms underpinning the plethora of dynamical behaviors observed in nature. This allows us to apply those ideas in constructive ways to understand and control dynamical systems in nature and technology, with applications ranging from biology to weather and climate.

My current research interests can be broken roughly into these areas:
