Nathanaël Berestycki's Homepage


Welcome to my homepage. I am Professor of Stochastics at the University of Vienna. Previously I was a member of the Statistical Laboratory at the University of Cambridge, where I remain Professor on leave.

What I do

I am interested in many aspects of probability theory. I enjoy the rich interplay with other fields such as analysis, geometry or combinatorics. More precisely, my research involves: Brownian motion, random geometry, Liouville quantum gravity, Gaussian free field, SLE, the dimer model, imaginary geometry, branching and coalescing systems and relation to partial differential equations.

My CV is here.
