Research Summary

Broadly speaking I am interested in Probability Theory and Statistical Mechanics. I study two-dimensional conformally invariant systems. The basic model of these are the Schramm-Loewner Evolution and its variants. I also have interests in statistical mechanics, random walks in random environments, directed polymer models, last passage percolation, and random matrix theory.
