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 the onset of exotic transport behavior in disordered media, nonlocal interactions in correlated systems, self-organization and stability of dusty plasmas in gravity and microgravity conditions, thermodynamics of non-Hamiltonian systems, 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).
