My research interests are mathematical statistical mechanics and probability, with a particular focus on
Metastability for birth and death processes, potential theoretic approach to metastability, variational principles for capacity, large deviation theory;
Metastability for Glauber dynamics on random graphs;
Equilibrium phase transitions of continuum interacting particle systems with Kac potentials;
Cluster and Mayer expansions.
