Curriculum Vitae and list of Publications.

Research Interests:

I am mostly interested in dynamical and equidistribution problems on homogeneous spaces.

The equidistribution of closed horocycle orbits and collections of closed geodesic orbits on

the modular surface are good examples of such problems. For more examples and my concrete

research see the introductory books and papers below.

Introductory material:

What is ... measure rigidity?

Ergodic Theory with a view towards Number Theory, joint with T. Ward. Published in the GTM series of Springer.

A simple proof of a special case of Ratner's measure classification theorem.

Entropy in ergodic theory and homogeneous dynamics, joint with E. Lindenstrauss and T. Ward. Work in progress.

Diagonal actions on locally homogeneous spaces, joint with E. Lindenstrauss.

An introduction to effective equidistribution and property (tau), describing joint work with G.Margulis and A.Venkatesh.

Current Course:

Functional Analysis I and II (2014/15), more information is
here and the lecture notes are here.

Some previous Courses:

"Counting seminar", joint with M. Burger.

Hecke operators and quantum unique ergodicity, describing the work of E. Lindenstrauss on Arithmetic Quantum Unique Ergodicity.
