45 rue des Saints-Pères, Paris
I'm an associate professor ("maître de conférences") in MAP5 in Paris. I'm interested mostly in probability and statistical physics, and I work a lot on time scales of random processes.
I did my PhD at the LPSM with Cristina Toninelli on interacting particle systems, and specifically on kinetically constrained models. This is a family of models studied in physics in order to better understand jamming of glassy and granular materials. You can see my thesis here. I continued the same line of work during a postdoc in Roma Tre University's probability group.
I studied for a B.Sc. in mathematics and physics at the Technion in Haifa (which is also my home town). Other than classes, I also got to work on two research projects, one in probability with Itai Benjamini at the Weizmnn Institute, and the other in experimental physics at Bielefeld university with Armin Gölzhäuser.
After my bachelor's, I moved to Paris and studied for a master's degree in theoretical physics at the ENS. This was a two year program, with two research internships, one for each year. The first year I worked at the LPMA (which turned into LPSM), with Giambattista Giacomin and Cristina Toninelli. Both projects were in mathematical statistical physics, from the mathematical side of it. For my second year's internship I worked with Kay Wiese at the LPTENS, still on statistical physics but from its physics side.
My CV is here.
