Atilla YılmazAssociate Professor Office: Wachman Hall, room 612 

My research interests are primarily in probability theory and stochastic processes. I work on large deviations for random walks in random environments as well as on related topics from statistical mechanics (disorder regimes of directed polymers in random environments), partial differential equations (homogenization of viscous HamiltonJacobi equations in random media), and control theory (risksensitive stochastic optimal control for random walks and diffusions in random environments). I also have a separate line of research on population dynamics (stochastic encountermating models).
