Summary: My collaborators and I have used techniques from ergodic theory, probability and dynamics to give insight into what are a priori a class of purely geometric/combinatorial problems. The advent of computers, in combination with the development of efficient algorithms to compute interesting geometric quantities, gives rise to a surfeit of data, which invites statistical/probabilistic analysis. This analysis suggests new tools, but also new research directions, or ways of looking at the original motivating problems. I have been pursuing these new directions avidly.
