- Research interests: In broad terms, my research interests concern all the
mathematical problems
involving an interplay between probability (mainly
stochastic analysis) and functional analysis, with applications to statistical mechanics and uncertainty quantification.
In particular,
- (Degenerate) Diffusion Processes - in particular hypoelliptic and UFG-type diffusions
- Diffusion processes with several invariant measures
- Theory of Markov Semigroups
- Markov Chain Monte Carlo methods
- Statistical Mechanics
- Stochastic Analysis
- Anomalous diffusion and random environments
- Collective dynamics and Self-Organization
- Nonlinear diffusions (nonlinear in the sense of McKean)
Warning: I am doing some cleaning up of this webpage, for a bit it might be not so accurate.
- Publications (partially updated 03/2018)
- Some Invited Talks
- Education and Previous Positions
- WORKSHOP and CONFERENCE ORGANIZATION

Since the mathematicians have invaded the theory of
relativity,
I do not understand it myself anymore.
