Welcome to my homepage. I am Professor of Stochastics at the University of Vienna.
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, random walks on graphs and groups, mixing times, connections with representation theory.
My CV is here.
I am an Associate Editor of
- International Mathematics Research Notices (IMRN)
- Annals of Probability
- Annals of Applied Probability
- Monatshefte für Mathematik.
- Mathematical Proceedings of the Cambridge Philosophical Society
- Springer Briefs in Mathematical Physics.
- I have also served as an associate edtor of Electronic Journal of Probability and Electronic Communications in Probability (2015-2020).
- My work is supported by the FWF through the grant Scaling limits in random conformal geometry.
- The Probability group at the University of Vienna.
- The Statistical Laboratory of the University of Cambridge, where I was based before coming to Vienna.
- I organise the Vienna Probability Seminar, jointly with Mathias Beiglböck at the University of Vienna, Laszlo Erdös and Jan Maas at the nearby IST, and Fabio Toninelli at TU Vienna.
