I am currently a Postdoctoral Associate and Schramm Fellow Instructor at the Department of Mathematics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology working in the group of Elchanan Mossel. During AY 2018–19, I was a postdoctoral researcher at Microsoft Research New England where under the mentorship of Christian Borgs and Jennifer Chayes. I completed my PhD in 2018 at Eindhoven University of Technology under the guidance of Remco van der Hofstad and Johan van Leeuwaarden.
Broad interests: Random graphs, Stochastic processes, Inference on networks, Graph limits.
Recent works/focus on: Percolation on finite graphs; epidemics on networks; community detection; sampling convergence; large deviation on random graphs.
My research aims to address emerging challenges arising in the study of large and complex networks. With a background in probability, over the past years, my research has focused broadly on problems arising from statistical physics, graph limits, network algorithms, and statistics. Here is a recent copy of my CV.
