James Waterman

I am a Milnor Lecturer at Stony Brook University, since Fall 2021. Previously, I was a Research Associate in the Dynamical Systems group at the University of Liverpool working with Prof. Lasse Rempe. I received my PhD from The Open University under the supervision of Prof. Gwyneth Stallard and Prof. Phil Rippon.

My research is mainly in complex dynamics, in particular the iteration of transcendental entire and meromorphic functions.
