Associate Professor
Professional Research Interests
I mostly consider Dynamical Systems that have a physical motivation and a geometric flavor. 
Systems of this kind I have studied include the Billiard in a polygon and more recently the dynamics in doubly periodic, planar Eaton lens patterns. A new direction in my research is based on new developments in optimal transportation. I try to apply that theory to questions related to ergodic optimization and the study of Ground states for dynamical systems with multi-dimensional potentials. For potential students: This part of my research is rather new and technically a little less involved than billiards.  Most importantly, the topic is better supported by the graduate classes we offer.
