My mathematical research interests are in probability theory and analysis, in particular in their applications to statistical mechanics.
More specifically, I am interested in spin systems and phase transitions, self-avoiding walks, random matrices and random graphs, renormalization, and supersymmetry.
In 2013-2014, I was member of the School of Mathematics at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton. Before that, in 2013, I obtained my Ph.D. degree 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 B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in physics from ETH Zürich. My master's thesis was supervised by Jürg Fröhlich and Wojciech de Roeck.
My favorite author is Paul Auster.
