**RESEARCH INTERESTS**

I am interested in the stability, the existence and uniqueness of (periodic, almost periodic, almost automorphic, pseudo-almost periodic, pseudo-almost automorphic) solutions to degenerate differential equations, fractional differential equations, difference equations, integro-differential equations, and stochastic differential equations as well as their applications to practical problems. I am also interested in a general spectral theory for unbounded linear operator in the non-archimedean setting.

In addition to the above-mentioned research activities, I also serve as the Editor-in-Chief and/or the Managing Editor of the following mathematical journals: Nonautonomous Dynamical Systems (de Gruyter), Communications in Mathematical Analysis (Mathematical Research Publishers), and Journal of Abstract Differential Equations and Applications (Mathematical Research Publishers) and serve in the editorial boards of several other mathematical journals.
