Research field: finite temperature and non-equilibrium field theories. This includes the various theoretical improvements of resummation techniques (dimensional reduction, 2PI-like techniques, pinch singularities and Boltzmann equations, non-perturbative resummation techniques), as well as the calculation of physical observables in this field (electroweak phase transition, study of QCD endpoint, hadronic exciations in quark-gluon plasma, Gibbs paradox in field theory, etc.).
