In your lifetime you won't encounter neither right choices nor bad choices,

but whenever you have to make one, you'll have to fight so that it becomes the best decision you could have ever taken.

Assistant Professor of Mathematics

Hi! I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Mathematics at MIT.

Before coming to MIT, I was a Szegő Assistant Professor in the Mathematics Department of Stanford University. I got my Ph.D. from the Institut für Mathematik of the Universität Zürich. My supervisors were Valentin Féray and Mathilde Bouvel

I am mainly interested in probability theory and its connections to combinatorics and mathematical physics. I am studying several random combinatorial structures and their continuous limits, such as random permutons, meanders, multi-dimensional constrained Brownian motions, Schramm-Loewner evolutions, and Liouville quantum gravity.
