My research is in Probability and Statistical Mechanics. More specifically, I have acquired some experience with:

- Random polymers, loop models, spin systems (paper [2])
- Random walks, interacting particle systems (papers [1], [3] and [4])
- Probabilistic cellular automata (papers [5] and [6])
- Mathematical models in epidemiology (paper [7])

I offered two courses for master students in mathematics at TU Darmstadt.

The course studies recurrence properties of random walks on general graphs. The analysis is carried on by introducing potential theory and the mathematical formalism of electric networks.

**Literature: ** Probability on Trees and Networks, by Lyons and Peres. Intesection of Random Walks, by G. F. Lawler.

The course explores the properties of spin systems with discrete and continuous symmetries. The program includes existence of the thermodynamic limit, high and low temperature representation for the Ising model, correlation inequalities, Lee and Yang cirle theorem, Mermin-Wagner theorem and connections to random walks.
