Hugo Duminil-Copin is a probabilist, meaning an expert in the mathematical theory dealing with random events. His research is interested in the theory of percolation, a domain of probability devoted to random graphs, as well as the theory of ferromagnetism and polymers. His work has an impact in mathematical physics, complex analysis and combinatorics. Hugo Duminil-Copin obtained his PhD in 2011 from the university of Geneva, where he became a professor the next year. Since 2016, he is also a permanent professor at the Institut des Hautes Études Scientifiques in Bures-Sur-Yvette.
