Research Summary:

Quantum and classical dissipative systems and non-linear media; algorithms to deal with the blurring that arises from a spatially or temporally varying function (eg caused by turbulence), or from an imperfect optical system (as occurred in the Hubble telescope); super-resolving microscopy; speech recognition, by seeking acoustic invariants to characterise speech pressure waves; low dimensional systems (including superconductors), with emphasis on understanding strong correlations, and in exploiting the similarities of the underlying quantum field theory to elementary particle physics.
