We would like to welcome Prof. Juhan Aru (EPFL) as SwissMAP Professor. Prof. Juhan Aru was previously a SwissMAP postdoc member in Wendelin Werner's group (ETH Zurich).
He will be joining our Statistical Mechanics research project, his research interests include how to mathematically describe and study systems where geometric structure and randomness interact. The mathematical field studying such phenomena lies at the interface of probability theory, analysis and mathematical physics. He works on random curves (SLE curves), height functions (Gaussian free field) and other random geometric structures (e.g. Gaussian multiplicative chaos), often with roots in the phenomena of statistical physics.
