**RESEARCH INTERESTS**** **** **

The central interests of Professor Rozovsky are in stochastic partial differential equations (SPDEs) and their applications. As its name suggests, SPDEs is an interdisciplinary area at the crossroads of stochastic processes and partial differential equations. In recent years, his research has focused on the development of spectral methods, in particular, the Wiener Chaos expansions for SPDEs. Applications of SPDEs to fluid dynamics in turbulent flows and nonlinear filtering (Hidden Markov Models) for spatial-temporal processes are the applications of SPDEs in which he is most interested.
