A rigorous approach to Statistical Mechanics related problems often produces interesting conceptual probabilistic issues. Moreover, Statistical Physics rooted models and ideas have a wide range of applications going from Informatics to Biology, Human and Animal collective behavior to Economics. My research interest is the understanding on a mathematical level of such models and their applications outside the realm of Physics.
