Research


My research is focused the mathematical analysis and study of stochastic models arising in physical sciences. Much of my work involves the study long-time behavior and regularity properties of stochastic partial differential equations and infinite dimensional stochastic dynamics related to problems in fluids mechanics, kinetic theory and particle systems. Currently I am interested in the ergodic theory and chaotic mixing properties of the stochastic Navier-Stokes equations and the effect it has on statistics of passive scalar turbulence.
