Research Interests

My research interests are in probability theory and statistical mechanics, as well as related aspects of combinatorics. I'm particularly interested in the lace expansion and its applications, models of random spatial permutations, non-Markovian random walks, cluster expansions and their combinatorics, and models of excluded volume such as branched polymers, hard spheres, nematic rods, and hard-core lattice gases. For more information, see my research statement.
