My research focus on two things: a) Construct urban growth models using well-known far-for-equilibrium process such as Diffusion-Limited Aggregation and Percolation, and b) ask how we can characterize large metropolitan areas through physics concepts like additive and non-additive entropy and phase transitions, and ultimate, search for the underlying mechanisms that shape the current morphology of our modern cities.
