The best that most of us can hope to achieve in physics is simply to misunderstand at a deeper level.
~ Wolfgang Pauli

My primary research interests lie along the intersections of fundamental physics and applied mathematics. Those include exotic transport behavior in disordered media, nonlocal interactions in correlated systems, self-organization and stability of dusty plasmas in gravity and microgravity, thermodynamics and statistical mechanics of driven-dissipative systems, lunar dust mitigation, and dust particle techniques for plasma diagnostics. I have authored a book on the application of a novel spectral approach to transport problems in two-dimensional physical systems.

The success of my research is largely fueled by cross-disciplinary collaborations with mathematicians, numerical physicists, and experimental research teams (such as the CASPER experimental group shown below).
