My research area is probability theory. My main work is in specialties such as motion in a random medium, first- and last-passage percolation, interacting particle systems, and large deviation theory. Preprints are available under Probability Theory in the Mathematics ArXiv.

A weekly probability seminar runs in the Mathematics Department. All interested are welcome.
