Nonlinear and Statistical Physics

California Institute of Technology

My research interests are in the area of collective, nolinear, and stochastic dynamics of nonequilibrium systems. Current projects include
  1. Basic theory of the synchronization of oscillators with disparate frequencies, and the application to arrays of nanomechanical devices (funded by NSF)
  2. Theory of phase noise in oscillators, and how to exploit nonlinearity to reduce phase noise (funded by DARPA)
  3. Dynamics of nonlinear, disordered, composite materials, with applications to energy harvesting
  4. Noise driven rare events in driven, nonequilibrium systems
  5. General theory of systems far from equilibrium
Please consult my recent papers for more information.

In the not-too-distant past I have also worked on
