Research topics

My  interest is mainly for stochastic processes and mathematical physics (out-of-equilibrium   statistical physics and dynamics in   disordered/glassy systems).  In particular my research has covered  the following topics: Hydrodynamic limit of interacting particle systems in random environment; Random walks in random environment; Random walks in dynamic random environment; Mott variable range hopping; Piecewise deterministic Markov processes; Large deviations of empirical measure, flow, current; Gallavotti-Cohen symmetry (fluctuation theorems); Discrete kinetic models of molecular motors; Kinetically constrained models; Coalescence processes; h-extrema of Brownian motion; Plaquette models for glassy dynamics; aging; random resistor networks; linear response theory.
