Kalle Kytölä




Scientific Activities:

My research interests deal with statistical physics, probability theory, conformal field theory and representations of infinite dimensional Lie algebras. In particular my goal is to understand better how conformal field theory can be applied to Schramm-Loewner evolutions (SLE) and related random conformally invariant geometric objects.
