Research summary

Ergodic theory and Teichmuller dynamics

My main research interests are in ergodic theory and Teichmuller dynamics, an area of ̈research in dynamical systems which has developed and bloomed in the last decades and that often involves arithmetical, geometrical and combinatorial tools. I am especially interested in parabolic dynamical systems, which are systems which display a "slow" form of chaotic evolution.

Examples of systems studied in Teichmuller dynamics are: ̈

• Polygonal billiards, in which a point-particle moves in a planar polygon bouncing elastically at sides.

• Geodesics on translation surfaces, which are locally Euclidean surfaces but at some conical singularities.

• ...
