My research interests are in the dynamics of interacting many-particle systems.  The original motivation came from non-equilibrium statistical physics (aggregation, fragmentation, adsorption, and other stochastic processes in physics, chemistry, and biology). The framework of interacting particle systems provides powerful tools and sheds light on the complexity and social phenomena. I also study the collective behaviors of quantum systems. Editorial Boards: Journal of Physics AJournal of Statistical PhysicsJournal of Statistical Mechanics: Theory and Experiment (continuing).
