My core research is in the general area of dynamical systems. The subject is exciting because it is a meeting place for real applications, numerical computation and beautiful theorems. A lot of my work is on the probabilistic side of dynamical systems: this is called "ergodic theory", where one seeks to know about the statistical properties of complex systems. I have made significant contributions in "numerical ergodic theory": approximation of important dynamical objects on a computer, with confidence in the accuracy of the output, backed by mathematical rigour. My more applied work involves collaborators in ecology, energy and transport, engineering and the mathematics of medicine.
