Extra Information
My research interests are in equilibrium statistical mechanics in general, and more particularly in discrete models of phase transitions. As these are often equivalent to a combinatorial problem, I am equally interested in the relevant combinatorics, and the connection between the two. Additionally, I am regularly looking for new ways to count the underlying graphs efficiently. This leads me into a study of algorithmic complexity.
