I am a mathematician broadly interested in combinatorics, probability theory and related problems in statistical physics and theoretical computer science.

Before moving to Rutgers, I was a Research Fellow at St John's College, Cambridge and a member of the DPMMS. Earlier, I received my PhD from the University of Cambridge under Béla Bollobás.

Here are a detailed CV, a complete list of publications, and quick summaries of my favourite papers. Some other biographical information may be found here.

A few representative papers are listed below; copies of all my papers are available here. Some handwritten lecture notes from past courses may be found here.
