Nathanaël Berestycki's Homepage


Welcome to my homepage. I am a Reader in Probability at the Statistical Laboratory, part of the DPMMS at the University of Cambridge. I am also a Fellow of King's College.

What I do

I am interested in many aspects of probability theory. I enjoy the rich interplay with other fields such as analysis, geometry or combinatorics. More precisely, my research involves: Brownian motion, random geometry, Liouville quantum gravity, Gaussian free field, SLE, branching and coalescing systems and relation to partial differential equations.

My CV is here.
