Resident Fellow

My work focuses on stochastic processes that are non-ergodic. This means that long-time averages do not converge to expectation values. Such processes are of practical relevance because they form the basis of economic theory. However, their non-ergodic nature has not been fully explored.

Prior to becoming interested in the foundations of economics I worked on atmospheric convection and far-from equilibrium critical phenomena in statistical mechanics.

Extra-curricular: I’m a fan of anything to do with oceans.
