Research Interests

My research interests lie primarily in the rigorous analysis of stochastic models from statistical physics and other areas. At the heart of the analysis is often an intricate interplay between probabilistic and geometric reasoning. Ongoing projects include studying the low-temperature nature of short-range spin glass models, scaling limits of two-dimensional critical percolation, and applications of the "Brownian web" to one-dimensional models of coarsening, aging, and nucleation.
