Giovanni Conforti

Welcome to my website! I am an assistant professor in probability at CMAP, École Polytechnique.

My research interests are in probability theory, with emphasis on

  • Stochastic transport problems such as Schroedinger problem and their connections with large deviations theory

  • Geometric aspects of optimal transport

  • Long time behaviour and exponential ergodicity of stochastic control problem, including mean field and McKean-Vlasov control problems.

  • Functional inequalities for discrete Markov chains and notions of discrete curvature

  • Infinite dimensional Hamilton Jacobi equations
