Research Statement

Within probability theory and statistical mechanics my research focuses on the Schramm-Loewner Evolution and its relation to discrete lattice models, the Gaussian Free Field, and other two-dimensional conformally invariant systems. Recently I also have interests in directed polymer models and last passage percolation, along with their relation to random walk in random environment.
