Background

Before University of Chicago, I was an NSF postdoctoral fellow in Department of Mathematics at Columbia University. I received my Ph.D. in Mathematics from MIT in 2017, advised by Alexei Borodin.

Research

My research focuses on the interplay between probabilistic and algebraic properties of lattice models in statistical mechanics.  My most recent work is related to random matrix theory and interacting particle systems with applications to random growth models, traffic models and combinatorics.
