Leslie Molag


Welcome! I am an Assistant Professor at Carlos III University of Madrid. Before that, I was a Research Fellow in Mathematics at the University of Sussex under the supervision of Nick Simm. I was a Postdoc of Gernot Akemann in the Mathematical Physics group at Bielefeld University. I was a PhD student in classical analysis at the Mathematics department of KU Leuven under the supervision of Arno Kuijlaars. Here is my CV (last update: November 2023).  

Brief Synopsis of Research:

My aim is to study a critical behavior in certain interacting particle systems such as determinantal point processes coming from random matrix theory, physics and related fields. These are described by orthogonal polynomials of various kinds and one frequently has to apply asymptotic methods to understand their behavior and that of related objects in the large system size. 


Random matrices, Riemann-Hilbert problems, orthogonal polynomials, special functions, vector equilibrium problems, determinantal point processes, random normal matrices, asymptotic analysis.
