Pablo Shmerkin


I am a Professor at the University of British Columbia (on leave from T. Di Tella University). My pronouns are he/him.

My work generally spans the areas of fractal geometry, analysis, and ergodic theory, although I am also interested in connections between these fields and  probability and combinatorics.

In particular, my recent work is concerned with:

  • Combinatorial problems in fractal geometry (projection theory, distance sets, Furstenberg set problem, etc).

  • Geometric properties of (random and deterministic) fractals of dynamical, arithmetic and combinatorial origin. In particular, geometrical aspects of dynamical rigidity and smoothness of self-similar measures.

  • Applications of fractal geometry in ergodic theory and analysis.
