Davide Ravotti

I am a research associate at the School of Mathematics of the University of Bristol, member of the Dynamical Systems and Ergodic Theory Group.
I have just completed my Ph.D. under the supervision of Prof. Corinna Ulcigrai.
Here you can find my CV.

Before starting my Ph.D., I have studied some aspects of Algebraic Logic related to Equidistribution Theory.
At the moment, I am interested in dynamical and ergodic properties of some classes of flows, namely locally Hamiltonian flows on compact surfaces, time-changes of nilflows and perturbations of unipotent flows in semisimple Lie groups.
