Dr Jimmy Tseng

Senior Lecturer (E&R)


I am a senior lecturer in mathematics.  My research focuses on homogeneous dynamics, ergodic theory, number theory (especially Diophantine approximation), geometry, and the interactions of these fields.  I have previously held teaching and research positions at the University of Bristol, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and the Ohio State University.  


A central theme of my research is the notion of equidistribution or the lack of it in various dynamical systems.  Most of the dynamical systems that I consider arise naturally from number theory, Lie groups and their lattices, and/or questions related to physics.  The tools that I use come from these fields as well as from ergodic theory/dynamical systems, harmonic analysis, and geometric measure theory.
