Research interests

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, stochastic dynamics, and supersymmetry in probability theory.



Before coming to Cambridge, I was post-doc at Harvard University and the Institute for Advanced Study. I received by PhD from the University of British Columbia and my undergraduate degrees from ETH Zurich. My advisers and post-doc mentors were David Brydges, Jürg Fröhlich, Wojciech de Roeck, Gordon Slade, Tom Spencer and Horng-Tzer Yau.
