I am broadly interested in combinatorics and related areas in probability theory and statistical physics. Some other things, including a picture of me, may be found here.

Before moving to Rutgers, I was a Research Fellow at St John's College and a member of the DPMMS. Earlier, I received my PhD in 2015 from the University of Cambridge under the supervision of Béla Bollobás. Here is a more detailed CV.

I organise the discrete mathematics seminar at Rutgers along with Jeff Kahn. Sign up here for the seminar mailing list.
