Outline Activities
On research: I have been studying crical phenomena and continuum limits of stitistical mechanical models in a mathematically rigorous way. These problems arise as a result of cooperative phenomena in systems of infinite degrees of freedom. Mathematically, these phenomena can be interpreted as a consequence of (yet unknown) limit theorems in probability theory. Currently, I am using Renormalzation Group Methods to study these problems. Recently, I am also studying problems related to foundations of quantum statistical mechanics.
Education: Have taught a lot of basic courses on undergraduate and gradute levels. Also acted as thesis advisors based on my
research interests explained above.
