Research Interests:
Much (but not all) of my research has revolved around the central theme of understanding how largescale behaviors emerge from dynamics or structures on smallscales. This includes the classical question of statistical physics about the macroscpic desciption of systems of large numbers of particles given known microscopic physics. It also includes studies of semiclassical limits of nonlinear wave equations, convergence of numerical schemes, turbulence modeling, derivations of shallow water systems, derivations of fluid dynamical systems from kinetic theories, radiation transport through random media, and many other areas. These problems all fall into the what is now called the class of "multiscale" problems.
