My main research activity revolves around the study of dynamical features of group actions on homogeneous spaces, directed towards applications ranging from geometry to number theory. Classical examples of geometric nature include the geodesic and the horocycle flow on the unit tangent bundle of hyperbolic surfaces. Typically relevant to arithmetic problems is the classification of measures invariant under the evolution of such systems, and the ensuing description of how trajectories distribute in the ambient space.

I’m also interested in various aspects of the interplay between dynamics and probability theory, notably in the investigation of statistical limit theorems in a number of different contexts, from spatial and temporal limit theorems for time averages along orbits of homogeneous flows, to large deviations properties of random walks on discrete structures.
