Drillick conducts research in dynamical systems, a field that studies the long-term behavior of systems that evolve with time. Dynamical systems arise in all areas of science, for example, systems of particles in statistical mechanics. She examines to what extent the particles in a system will get mixed together over time as well as how often a system will return to to a state that is similar to one of its previous states. In particular, she studies the mixing properties of circle rotations for certain infinite measures.
