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, renormalisation, stochastic dynamics, applications of supersymmetry in probability theory, and random matrices.
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.
I gratefully acknowledge funding from the European Research Council (ERC) under the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme (grant agreement No. 851682 SPINRG).
