Personal profile

Research Interests

My research lies in the field of Statistical Physics applied to Phase Transitions and Criticality in Magnetic systems and Polymer systems. Currently, my research also aims to apply the methods of statistical physics to problems related to static and dynamic Biological phenomena.

 

I would like to highlight the diversity of the methods I use to solve the problems I investigate, encompassing exact analytical methods (e.g., mean-field theory and RPA) and numerical methods (transfer matrix, exact enumeration, DMRG and CTMRG), often applied in innovative ways. This variety stems from the fact that my research is driven by physical problems rather than the application of any particular method. I am also currently working on exotic phase transitions in polymeric systems and their Quantum analogues (Efimov phases).
