Currently, I am an
Assistant Professor in the ORFE Department and an Affiliated Faculty Member of the Bendheim Center for Finance at
University, after being an Assistant Professor in the Math
Department at Princeton. Before coming to Princeton I was a
Postdoctoral Fellow at UC
Berkeley and MSRI
mentored by David Aldous. My PhD is from the Math Department at Stanford University
where my advisor was Amir Dembo.
At the moment, I am studying interacting
particle systems arising in mathematical finance, mathematical physics, and neuroscience using tools from stochastic analysis and PDE/SPDE. More broadly, my interests include a
variety of topics in probability theory and PDEs: random operators, integrable probability, models of random growth, concentration of measure, large deviations,
and probabilistic approaches to hyperbolic and parabolic PDEs.
My research is partially supported by the NSF grant DMS-1811723 and a Princeton SEAS
Here you can find activities I am involved
in, my PhD students,
publications, recent talks, collaborators, and CV.
