meeting Einstein in London ;-)

Research interest: Nonequilibrium statistical thermodynamics of dissipative many-body systems
(e.g., granular matter, earthquakes, dislocations, etc

Current problems:

1. Physical models for statistical laws in seismology: Gutenberg-Richter law, Omori law, recurrence time distribution, etc.
2. Physical models for phenomenological friction laws.
3. The nature of jamming transition: rheology, dynamical heterogeneity, dynamic criticality, etc.

Past problems:

- Heat conduction in one-dimensional lattices
- The second law of nonequilibrium thermodynamics (as well as the 0th law).
- Atomistic mechanism of shock compression of solids ( Phys. Rev. Lett. 92, 015503 (2004); Phys. Rev. Lett. 93, 085501 (2004)) - Dynamics of dislocation pinning in crystalline materials ( Phys. Rev. B 77, 064108 (2008); Phys. Rev. B 74, 020102(R) (2006); Phys. Rev. B 72, 094105 (2005))
