I am a professor of mathematics at The City College of New York and also a member of the doctoral faculty at the CUNY Graduate Center. From Fall 2012 to Spring 2016 I served as mathematics department chair at The City College. In addition to teaching, I enjoy mentoring students doing research and independent study projects.

My research is in the areas of dynamical systems and smooth ergodic theory. In particular, I am working on geometric, ergodic- and dimension theoretical aspects of smooth and symbolic dynamical systems. This includes the dynamics on real manifolds (Axiom A, non- uniformly hyperbolic and parabolic systems), shift spaces as well as on one- and higher dimensional complex spaces. Recent research interests include the existence problem of zero-temperature limits and of measures of maximal dimension, and the computability of dynamically defined objects such as rotation sets, residual entropy and zero-temperature measures.
