Research interests

Dynamical systems and its applications
Low-order climate modeling

Through a recent sabbatical spent at the University of Minnesota, where I participated in Dick McGehee's seminar Mathematics of Climate, I have become interested in mathematical modeling of climate. The focus is on conceptual, or low order models, in which the influence of the major climate components such as incoming solar radiation and albedo is studied. I am a member of the Mathematics and Climate Research Network.
