Research Interests: mathematical physics

My research domain lays at the boundary between physics and mathematics. On one
hand the problems I study are generally inspired by physics (mainly condensed matter
physics and equilibrium statistical mechanics) and many of the techniques I use are
imported from physics too. On the other hand my job is to transform these techniques
into rigorous mathematical proofs. For that purpose I use a mixture of analytical
and algebraic tools: complex analysis and saddle point methods, multiscale analysis,
cluster and contour expansions for functions of many variables, functional analysis on
Grassman algebras, harmonic analysis on surfaces.


Main research lines:

  • Quantum diffusion and random walk in a random environment
  • Random matrices for disordered conductors
  • Order/disorder transitions in classical statistical mechanics systems
  • Constructive renormalization for interactiong fermions
  • Non commutative quantum field theory
