My major research interests are in probabilistic, combinatorial, and statistical analysis of models for problems arising in physics, engineering, and communications: computed tomography; automatic pattern recognition; probabilistic models for phase transitions; connectedness of random graphs; mathematics of finance; genetics. I am actively working on the problem of closed loop control of diabetes.
