Matt Galton

About me:

I am a final year PhD student, supervised by Prof. Ian Melbourne.

I am interested in smooth ergodic theory. In particular, showing limit theorems (weak invariance principles and enhanced weak invariance principles) for dynamical systems under extremely mild mixing conditions with an aim to apply to deterministic homogenisation.

As part of my MSc, I was involved with the large deviations research study group, supervised by Dr. Stefan Adams and Dr. Roger Tribe. We investigated thermodynamic limits and large deviations for wetting and pinning problems relating to height fields distributed under Gibbs measures in (1+1)-dimensions. The website we produced can be found here.
