Analysis of dispersive equations and the equations of fluid mechanics
Dr. Richards research is focused on the analysis of nonlinear partial differential equations coming from physics and engineering, specifically dispersive equations and the equations of fluid mechanics. His interests relate to statistical properties of solutions, including the analysis of invariant measures, and ergodic theory for turbulent stochastic flows.
Dr. Richards was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Institute for Mathematics and its Applications (2012-2013), and a Visiting Assistant Professor of Mathematics at the University of Rochester (2013-2016). Dr. Richards was also a Research Member at the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute during fall 2015.
Dr. Richards has delivered invited talks at several international conferences as well as research seminars at Princeton, Cornell, and Duke University, among other institutions. He has extensive teaching experience, and has received awards for excellence in teaching.
