My mathematical research interests are in probability theory and analysis, in particular in their applications to statistical mechanics.
I am particularly interested in spin systems and phase transitions, self-avoiding walks, random matrices, renormalization, dynamics, and supersymmetry.
In 2014-2016, I was postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Mathematics at Harvard University, mentored by Horng-Tzer Yau. In 2013-2014, I was member of the School of Mathematics at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, where my host was Tom Spencer. In 2013, I obtained my Ph.D. in Mathematics in the Probability Group at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. My supervisors were Gordon Slade and David Brydges. In 2009, I obtained my M.Sc. in Physics from ETH Zürich. My thesis was supervised by Jürg Fröhlich and Wojciech de Roeck.
