Research interests

My research activity mainly concerns Probability Theory applied to Statistical Mechanics and Complex Systems. In particular, I am interested in

  • scaling limits for interacting particle systems,

  • path-space fluctuations for non-disordered/disordered interacting particle systems,

  • emergence of collective macroscopic behaviour in stochastic systems with many degrees of freedom,

  • random graphs,

  • stochastic dynamics and relaxation times.

Collateral topics: occupancy models and free probability.

Keywords: disordered models, exchangeable occupancy models, fluctuations, free completely random measure, free Lévy basis, interacting particle systems, large and moderate deviations, limit theorems, Markov processes, mean field interaction, mixing and relaxation times, perturbation theory, random graphs, self-organized behaviors, stochastic dynamics.
