Stochastic modeling, analysis and simulation: 

Understanding large-scale and long-time dynamics of physical and biological systems through analysis and simulations of simple yet physically relevant models. The mathematical problems I work on also help to explain experimentally observable phenomena, exposing underlying mechanisms to intuitively explain the system’s behavior.
