I am interested in probability theory and statistical mechanics, in particular the dimer model, the six vertex model and alternating sign matrices. Recently, I have been studying the rough-smooth transition, a transition between exponential and polynomial decay of correlations, which appears naturally in the two-periodic Aztec diamond. More recently, I have been looking at fluctuations appearing frozen-unfrozen interface in the alternating sign matrices.
More recently, I have been studying the so-called liquid-gas transition which naturally appears for domino tilings of the two-periodic Aztec diamond.
