About me and my research

I am currently a postdoctoral fellow in Probability and Mathematical Physics at IHÉS in the group of Professor Hugo-Duminil Copin. I obtained my Ph.D. from the University of Chicago in 2017 under the guidance of Professor Jian Ding.

I am primarily interested in probability theory and its applications to problems in physics and statistics. My Ph.D. thesis dealt with metric properties of planar log-correlated gaussian fields, a family of stocahstic processes which includes gaussian free fields. One part of my thesis concerns the metric of Liouville quantum gravity which is a very rich and important model in mathematical physics. Some of the projects I am currently working on involve ising models, gaussian free fields and other lattice models in statistical physics. I am also very interested in mathematical statistics, specifically the interface of probability theory, statistics and optimization.
