· Ph. D. in mathematics (Cornell University) |
||

I am a postdoc researcher at the Alfréd Rényi Institute of Mathematics advised by Balázs Gerencsér. I received my Ph.D. in mathematics from Cornell University, under the supervision of Laurent Saloff-Coste. I was also fortunate to have Lionel Levine and Éva Tardos on my committee. I completed my B.A. in mathematics at Swarthmore College and M.S. in computer science at Cornell University. Prior to Rényi, I was a postdoc researcher at Universität Innsbruck advised by Ecaterina Sava-Huss. My research is in discrete probability, especially how random processes are influenced by the geometry of the space on which they take place. Most recently, I have been thinking about a variety of random walks, analyzing them using heat kernel estimates and expansion properities, as well as mass aggregation models and hidden Markov models. -

In Fall 2019, I taught a math seminar at Ithaca High School on the probabilistic method. In Fall 2018, I was an instructor for Math 1110: Calculus I. I have also been a teaching assistant for Math 2940: Linear Algebra for Engineers and Math 2240: Theoretical Linear Algebra and Calculus. |
