Previously I was fortunate to be a Hedrick postdoc (UCLA, 2019-2022) mentored by Igor Pak and a graduate student (Cornell, 2014-2019) supervised by Lionel Levine.


My research interests lie at the intersection of combinatorics and probability.
I am interested in probabilistic and combinatorial inequalities, with a focus on inequalities arising from partially ordered sets.
I am also working on random walks in random environments that interact with the walker, where the uniform spanning forest makes a surprising appearance.
I have previously worked on various stochastic processes that exhibit self-organized criticality, building a unifying theory for those processes.
