Samuel Dodds

I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Mathematics, Statistics, and Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Chicago, advised by Alexander Furman. My principle research interests lie in the intersection of Ergodic Theory and Geometric Group Theory. In particular, the asymptotic and geometric properties of subgroups of Lie groups and random walks on subgroups of Lie groups. I have proven various results about the entropy of stationary dynamical systems, and the factorizability of such systems, which occur in the context of Gromov hyperbolic groups. Here's a copy of my CV.
