Dr. Matt Nicol Dr. Nicol is a professor at the University of Houston and has been the recipient of several NSF grants. Dr. Nicol's interests include Ergodic theory of group extensions and geometric rigidity, ergodic theory of hyperbolic dynamical systems, dynamics of skew products and iterated function systems, and equivariant dynamical systems. There is a description of these topics on Dr. Nicol's webpage. |

Dr. Andrew Török Dr. Török is a professor at the University of Houston. His research interests include ergodic theory and dynamical systems, stochastic processes, and operator algebras. |

Dr. William Ott Dr. Ott is a professor at the University of Houston. He joined the faculty at the University of Houston in 2008 after completing a Courant Instructorship (2004-2006) and an NSF postdoctoral fellowship (2006-2008) at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences. |

Dr. Alan Haynes Dr. Haynes is a professor at the University of Houston. After completing his Ph.D. at the University of Texas at Austin, he accepted a postdoctoral position at Brandeis University (2007-2008). He then spent a number of years in England, at the University of York (2008-2011 and 2013-2016) and the University of Bristol (2011-2013), before returning to the states to take up his current post. His research interests include topics in dynamical systems, probability theory, analytic number theory, Diophantine approximation, discrete geometry, tiling theory, and the mathematics of quasicrystals. |

Dr. Vaughn Climenhaga Dr. Climenhaga is an associate professor at the University of Houston. He did postdoctoral work at the University of Maryland (2010-2011) and at the University of Toronto (2011-2012), where he was an NSERC Postdoctoral Fellow. His research interests are in dynamical systems and ergodic theory, particularly non-uniform hyperbolicity and smooth dynamics, statistical mechanics and thermodynamic formalism, symbolic dynamics, and multifractal analysis. |
