My research is in dynamical systems (sometimes popularly termed "Chaos Theory"), which seeks to understand how systems change with time and how this evolution can be understood, classified and predicted. This area of research is an exciting interdisciplinary field which relates to, and uses ideas from pure and applied mathematics, physics and computer science. My current work focuses on two broad areas: the study of integrable systems (ordered dynamics based on rotations) and the study of arithmetic dynamics (a hybrid of dynamical systems with number theory). I work with my students, research associates and national and international collaborators.
