Elena Pulvirenti

Welcome!

I am currently a Postdoc at the Institute for Applied Mathematics, University of Bonn, in the group of Anton Bovier.

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.
