## Research Interests

ProbabilityStochastic Control

Prof. Feng's research interests fall into Probability and related areas. He is currently working on statistical description of limit behaviors for a variety of deterministic PDEs. Usually, such problem has a microscopic origin which is stochastic, and the overall program involves variational characterization of a probabilistic theory known as large deviation. Some key techniques involved are Markov processes theory, viscosity solution for Hamilton-Jacobi equations, and the theory of optimal mass transportation. Professor Feng is also interested in financial mathematics and statistical inference for stochastic processes.
