Research Interests
My main research area is Thermodynamic Formalism. I am particularly interested in applications to other areas of mathematics, including geometry, number theory, dimension theory and analysis.
A Little Background
I was both an undergraduate (in Mathematics and Physics) and a graduate student (in Mathematics at Warwick University. My PhD supervisor was the late William Parry, FRS. I returned to Warwick for the first time from 1992 to 1995 (as a Lecturer, then Reader) and for the second time in 2005 (as a Professor).
When not at Warwick, I held permanent positions in Edinburgh (New Blood Lecturer, 198488), Porto (Investigador Auxiliar, 198992) and Manchester (Fielden chair, 19962004).
I have also been the recipient of a Royal Society University Research Fellowship (199297), two Royal Society Leverhulme Trust Senior Research Fellowships (199899 and 20072008) and a E.U. Marie Curie Chair (200405). I currently hold a five year EPSRC Leadership Fellowship (20152020). In addition, I have held visiting positions at IHES (Paris, 198485 and 201213), IAS (Princeton, 198889), MSRI (Berkeley, 1989), CalTech (Pasadena, 1990) and Grenoble (1990).
I coorganized a 6 month programme on Ergodic Theory, Geometric Rigidity and Number Theory at the Newton Institute (2000); a year long symposium on Ergodic Theory and Dynamical Systems (20102011); a 6 month programme on Fluctuations and Large Deviations at the CIBLausanne (2013); and a 4 month programme on Dimension and Dynamics at ICERMProvidence (2016).
I am a consulting editor for the Proceedings of the Edinburgh Mathematical Society and an editor for the Journal of Fractal Geometry and a former editor of Ergodic Theory and Dynamical Systems and Discrete and Continuous Dynamical Systems
