Graduate Students:
Current Faculty:
 John M. Alongi: Dynamical Systems and Ergodic Theory.
John studies dynamical systems from a topological perspective.

Nir Avni: Arithmetic groups and Representation Theory.
Nir studies Model theory, Group theory and generalizations, Topological groups, Lie groups, Measure and integration, Dynamical systems and ergodic theory, Differential geometry

Keith Burns: Dynamical Systems and Ergodic Theory
Keith works on geometrical and dynamical problems connected with geodesics in manifolds with nonpositive curvature. Recent work has concentrated on partial hyperbolicity and stable ergodicity.

Laura DeMarco: Dynamical systems and complex analysis.
Laura explores the relationship between algebraic geometry, complex dynamics, and algebraic number theory.
 John Franks: Dynamical Systems and Ergodic Theory.
John's recent topological work has focused on actions of groups on surfaces  in particular, lattice actions which leave invariant a Borel probability measure on the surface. Some of his earlier work concerned knots that occur as closed orbits of flows, index arguments using the zeta function, subshifts of finite type, attractors, and descriptions of possible dynamics.
 Bryna Kra: Dynamical Systems and Ergodic Theory.
Bryna works in dynamical systems and ergodic theory, with an emphasis on applications to combinatorial number theory.

Joel Moreira: Ergodic Theory and Combinatorics.
Joel studies convergence of ergodic averages and multiple recurrence with applications to arithmetic combinatorics and Ramsey theory.
 Jeff (Zhihong) Xia: Dynamical Systems.
Jeff's research is in the areas of Newtonian nbody problem, Hamiltonian dynamics and general hyperbolic and partially hyperbolic dynamical systems.
Postdoctoral Lecturers, Visiting Faculty, & Emeritus Faculty:
 Alexandra Bellow (Emeritus).
 Elizabeth Burslem: Dynamical Systems.

Eric Chang: Complex Dynamics.
Eric likes structures in the parameter space of singularly perturbed rational maps. If that sounds similar to Dan's interests: Fun Fact!

Daniel Cuzzocreo: Complex Dynamics.
Dan is interested in holomorphic dynamical systems. In particular, he is interested in structures in parameter spaces for families of rational maps.

Kenneth Jacobs: Dynamical Systems.
Ken studies arithmetic dynamics, with a particular emphasis on equidistribution results for families of measures attached to rational maps.

Myrto Mavraki: Arithmetic Geometry and Arithmetic Dynamics.
Myrto patently refuses to describe her work in a short sentence.

Florian Richter: Dynamical Systems.
Florian's interests include dynamical systems, ergodic theory, additive combinatorics, multiplicative number theory.

R.Clark Robinson (Emeritus).

Scott Schmieding: Dynamical Systems.
Scott works in symbolic and topological dynamics.
Graduate Students:

Anh Le.
Anh Le's interests lie in ergodic theory, especially on multiple ergodic averages and the problems originated from number theory and combinatorics.
 Shuyi Weng.
Shuyi Weng is interested in complex dynamics, harmonic measure, conformal geometry, and cats.
