Research Interests

My research generally has been in the theory of nonequilibrium phenomena in condensed matter. My specific areas of interest have been: quantum many body theory of transport in solids, the kinetics of first-order phase transitions including nucleation and spinodal decomposition, dendritic pattern formation in crystal growth and, most recently, the dynamics of earthquakes and fracture.
