I am a postdoctoral researcher, working in the group of Probability Theory at the University Potsdam. 

I am funded by the SFB 1294 - Data Assimilation, working on the project A05 Combining non parametric statistical and probabilistic approaches for inference on cloud-of-points data, with Prof. Dr. Sylvie Roelly, Prof. Dr. Gilles Blanchard (Principal investigators) and Alexander Zass (PhD student).


I am currently organizing the Research Seminar of the probability team during the winter term 2018-19. Here is the planning.


Research themes

  • Statistical mechanics and Gibbs point processes.
  • Percolation and disagreement percolation.
  • Phase transition.
  • Fortuin-Kasteleyn representation.
