I am a mathematician; my field of expertise is probability theory. I am studying discrete random objects of varying flavour, such as
  • phase transitions in models of statistical mechanics, mean-field behaviour, lace expansion;
  • long-range order of discrete models in continuum space, symmetry breaking, crystallization;
  • spatial random graph models;
  • random walk in dynamic random environment.
