Simons Collaboration on Wave Turbulence



My main interest is in Partial Differential Equations and Harmonic Analysis.

Here is my cv.

Here are recent papers to get an idea of what I have been working on in recent years.

If you want to learn more about dispersive equation check the following sites: Dispersive Wiki , webpage on Dispersive Equations

Here are some recent talks:

The lasting influence of Jean Bourgain’s work in the study of Dispersive Equations
The 2018 Earle Raymond Hedrick Lectures
Almost sure g.w.p, Gibbs measures and gauge transformations
On dispersive equations and their importance in mathematics
Very weak turbulence for certain dispersive equations
