Research

My research is in analysis and probability, and I particularly like problems with links to mathematical physics and statistical mechanics, including those involving random maps (which are basically random graphs embedded on Riemann surfaces), Loewner evolution (both deterministic and SLE), and random matrix theory.

I got my PhD from Brown in 2017, and my advisor was Govind Menon.

Here's a link to my Thesis.
