My research lies at the overlap of Nonlinear Fourier Analysis/Harmonic Analysis and Nonlinear Partial Differential Equations integrating into it tools from geometry, gauge theory and probability. These are two areas that intimately relate to each other by way of decompositions, frequency interactions analysis and nonlinear estimates. In recent years, its main focus has been to investigate:
(i) the behavior of solutions to nonlinear dispersive equations arising as models both in Physics and in Geometry -both from a deterministic and nondeterministic viewpoint and 
(ii) wave-packet analysis techniques and multilinear singular pseudodifferential operators naturally arising in Analysis and PDE.

My Publications are listed in the biosketch under Profile.
