My thesis has centered around: linear and semilinear dynamical systems, semigroups of linear operators and their adjoints, applications to various classes of delay differential equations, applications to stability and bifurcation of equilibria. Details and examples can be found in the publications below.
My interests are in mathematical analysis, dynamical systems, and time delay systems in particular. My focus is on linear theory and methods, usually with a view towards studying existence and (change of) stability of relatively simple invariants of nonlinear systems, such as equilibria and periodic orbits.
