Research Interests

Differential equations, dynamical systems, optics, uncertainty quantification, applied probability, and mathematical analysis

Amir received his B.Sc. in Mathematics and Physics from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (2009), and later proceeded for an M.Sc. (2016) and Ph.D. (2019) in Applied Mathematics at Tel Aviv University. In his Ph.D., Amir studied random and chaotic dynamics in nonlinear optics, and developed new numerical approach to uncertainty-quantification.
