I am a mathematical physicist, with interests in both preturbative and non perturbative aspects of quantum field theories. My work focuses in particular on random tensor models (higher dimensional generalizations of random matrix models) and tensor field theories. In particular, I discovered that such models support a new 1/N expansion and lead to a new large N limit, the melonic limit. Random tensor models provide a framework for the study of higher dimensional random geometries. Tensor field theories yield a new class of analytically tractable Conformal Field Theories relevant for the AdS/CFT correspondence and condensed matter systems.
