I received my PhD in Applied Mathematics from the University of Victoria, BC in 2000. I also hold a DSc degree in Astronomy from the Romanian Academy of Sciences (1997).
Prior to joining Laurier, I was a lecturer at Imperial College London (2004-2005), a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Surrey, UK (2003-2004), a visiting assistant professor at Texas Tech (2002) and research associate at University of Victoria (2000-2002).
The main focus of my research is on the role of symmetry in dynamical systems, in particular in mechanical systems. The applications I am interested in are in classical mechanical systems (celestial mechanics, astrodynamics, rolling bodies, ideal fluids).
I have Research Assistantships opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students interested in applied mathematics. Current projects are in vortex dynamics (simpler models of hurricanes), dynamics of space and underwater vehicles, and various models of n-body problems. Contact me for more information.
