Research interests

My research interest are in probability, statistical physics and complex analysis.

I have been studying several questions related to the Schramm-Loewner evolutions (SLE). Those questions include proofs of conformal invariance in two-dimensional lattice models of statistical physics and related mathematical tools.

I'm also interested in other applications of stochastics.
