Research Interests


    • Modeling thin film growth, in solution or vacuum (electrodeposition, MBE, plasma, etc)
    • Kinetic roughening of interfaces: universality classes, competitive models, dynamic transitions.
    • Infiltration / diffusion in porous media
    • Mineral growth and dissolution
    • Water-rock interaction: weathering, water transport, soil evolution, etc at geological scale


    • Anomalous growth of aggregates and glassy behavior
    • Growth of polymer-nanoparticle composites
    • Disordered magnetism: bond disorder, rough structures
    • Critical phenomena in fractal media
