I am a Courant Instructor in the Mathematics Department of the Courant Institute at New York University hosted by Professor Lai-Sang Young.
Prior to this, I was a postdoctoral reasearcher in mathematics at CY Cergy Paris Université (Laboratoire AGM), working with Professor Armen Shirikyan.
I completed my PhD in 2020 at McGill University (Department of mathematics and statistics) and Université Grenoble Alpes (Institut Fourier), under the joint supervision of Professors Vojkan Jakšić and Alain Joye.
Find more about me on the About page or by visiting my ORCID, arXiv and Research Gate profiles.
I study mathematical physics, with emphasis on time-dependent aspects of statistical mechanics and entropy production, in both quantum and classical systems.
Relevant mathematical tools to study such problems include:
- probability theory (large deviations, stochastic differential equations);
- dynamical systems and ergodic theory (recurrence, mixing, theory of C*-algebras, random dynamical systems);
- operator theory (spectra, resolvents, perturbation theory, one-parameter semigroups).
