My research is in the area of probability and partial differential equations, which have been used to model many phenomena in the natural sciences and engineering.  Asymptotic analysis has been a common theme in much of my research.  Current research interests include: stochastic dynamics, interacting particle systems, reaction-diffusion equations, applications to biological models.
