PhD thesis: Critical points, cusps and induced expansion in dimension one
Supervisor: Jacek Graczyk.
Defended on 11th December 2006, Orsay.

I now work at UCD. Come visit! Past member of the Mathematical Physics group at the University of Geneva. My research career has been supported by the French government, the Marie Curie network CODY, the Wallenberg Foundation, the Gustafsson Foundation, an IBM Herman Goldstine Fellowship, the Academy of Finland and the ERC.
