About Me

I am a third year graduate student in the probability group. My academic interests are mostly in probability and analysis, with a focus (currently) on stochastic processes. There is a brief description of my current research problem below.

Research



My research is currently focused on problems involving a collection of coupled families of stochastic differential equations arising from random matrix theory called the 'sine beta process.' At the moment, I am trying to show that the process level weak limit of the associated counting functions as (the inverse temperature parameter) beta tends to zero is Poisson. The image above is a small beta simulation I did recently of the process obtained as a limit of random Schrödinger operators in one of the families my adviser and I study.

We have a weekly graduate probability seminar ; graduate students (or undergraduates) who might be interested in research in probability are welcome to attend. We also have a research seminar that usually meets on Thursday at 2:30 PM.
