I am currently a postdoc at UCLA mentored by Igor Pak.
Previously I was a graduate student at Cornell University, supervised by Lionel Levine.

My research interests lie at the intersection of probability and combinatorics, with some motivations from statistical physics.

I have worked on various stochastic processes that exhibit self-organized criticality, building a unifying theory for those processes.

I have also worked on random walks in random environments that interact with the walker, where the uniform spanning forest makes a surprising appearance.

Recently I have also been interested in the applications of probability to the theory of partially ordered sets.

Current quarter (Summer 2020): I am not teaching any classes.

Previous quarter (Spring 2020): I was teaching Math 170S at UCLA.
