  • Curriculum vitae

  • Publications and preprints

  • Research interests

    My research activity is at the interface between probability and mathematical statistical mechanics. My favourite topics are:

  • Interacting particle systems: stochastic models with Glauber and Kawasaki dynamics, kinetically constrained models, plaquette models, mixing times, spectral gap, out of equilibrium dynamics, functional inequalities, hydrodynamic limit, large deviations, porous media equation, tagged particle;

  • Cellular automata and bootstrap percolation : universality and critical properties

  • Liquid-glass transitions and jamming transitions : modelization, dynamical heterogeneities and correlation lengths, glassy dynamics, aging;

  • Coalescence processes : hierarchical coalescence models and applications to statistical mechanics systems;

  • Randomized algorithms : optimization and group testing problem.

  • Grants

    I am the coordinator of the ERC grant MALIG: "A mathematical approach to the liquid-glass transition: kinetically constrained models, cellular automata and mixed order phase transitions" .
    I am a member of the ANR project "Large Stochastic Dynamical Models in Non-Equilibrium Statistical Physics"
