The main focus of my work concerns the analysis of interact-ing stochastic systems of many components. This includes a special focus on models from statistical mechanics with an em-phasis on disordered models, in particular spin glasses. Apart from classical aspects of equilibrium Gibbs measures I am particularly interested in aspects of long term dynamics such as metastability and aging. More recently I am also interested in application of methods from these areas in models of population genetics, ecology, and neurodegenerative diseases.
