Our research intends to investigate some contemporary models in Probability Theory and Stochastic Processes, in particular spacial models with correlations that decay slowly with distance including continuum percolation models and random interlacements. In continuum percolation, we consider problems about planar Boolean models with defects that are not euclidean balls, like elipses model and Poisson stick soups, especially the scale-invariant Poisson stick soup studied by Nacu and Werner. Regarding random interlacements, there are many possible lines of work. Besides considering the classical case of dimensions greater or equal to 3, we also want to work with random interlacements in dimensions 1 and 2.
