Ph.D., Brown University, 1985

My main interests are in applications of probability and in the control of deterministic and stochastic processes. Tools that I use are large deviation theory, which explains how rare events occur in random processes, numerical methods such as Markov chain approximations and Monte Carlo simulation, and partial differential equations.
