My research centers on the nanoscale patterns that develop spontaneously when a solid surface is bombarded with a broad ion beam. These patterns include ordered arrays of nanodots and surface ripples with wavelengths as short as 10 nm. From a more mathematical standpoint, I study self-organization in systems driven far from equilibrium as well as solitons and shockwaves.
