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
