Research Interests:
 Abstract Differential Equations
 Operator Theory
 (padic) Functional Analysis
 Stochastic Differential Equations
 Difference Equations
 Integrodifferential Equations
I am interested in the study of the stability, the existence and
uniqueness of (periodic, almost periodic, almost automorphic, pseudoalmost periodic, pseudoalmost
automorphic) solutions to degenerate differential equations, fractional differential equations,
difference equations, integrodifferential equations, and stochastic differential equations as well
as their applications to practical problems.
I am also interested in a general spectral theory for unbounded linear operators in the padic setting.
