My research interests lie at the intersection of probability and combinatorics, with some motivations from statistical physics.
I have worked on various stochastic processes that exhibit self-organized criticality, building a unifying theory for those processes.
I have also worked on random walks in random environments that interact with the walker, where the uniform spanning forest makes a surprising appearance.
Recently I have also been interested in the applications of probability to the theory of partially ordered sets.
