He is also a regular visitor at the Weizmann Institute of Science.

His works in mathematical physics have focused on spectra and dynamics of random operators, critical behavior, critical dimensions, and disorder effects in statistical mechanics. For his fundamental contributions in these fields he received the Dannie Heineman Prize, Brouwer Medal, Norbert Wiener Award, an honorary doctorate at Universite Cergy-Pontoise, and was elected member of the US National Academy of Sciences.

He served a turn on the executive board of the Int. Assoc. Math. Phys., and was the editor in chief of Comm. Math. Phys. from 2000 till 2012.
