I am currently Assistant Professor (NTT) of Mathematics at University of Southern California.
I work in the field of Probability, and I am especially interested in statistical mechanics of disordered systems, and more precisely models of polymer in random environment. I study in particular pinning models and the so-called localization transition. The main issue is to know how the presence of disorder can modify the characteristics of the localization phenomenon (criterion for relevance/irrelevance of disorder).
I did my Ph.D. with Fabio Toninelli, at École Normale Supérieure de Lyon (France). Its title is "Polymers in random environment: influence of correlated disorder on the localization phenomenon", and I defended it on June 15, 2012.
