Personal profile
Research Interests
Probability theory (subadditive processes, spin glasses, gaussian fields and random matrices) and its connections with other domains of mathematics (partial differential equations, dynamical systems), physics (statistical mechanics of disordered media), and theoretical biology (ecology). His main interest is in the complexity of such disordered systems and the universal aspects of their long time behavior.
