I am currently an assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Utah. My research is focused on probability theory.

Prior to being at Utah, I was the Scott Russell Johnson Senior Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Mathematics at Caltech, and an NSERC Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Toronto. I completed my graduate studies at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University. My thesis advisor was Scott Sheffield.

Research


My main focus of research is in probability theory, and within that I mostly study two-dimensional conformally invariant systems. The basic model of these are the Schramm-Loewner Evolution and its variants. I also have interests in statistical mechanics, random walks in random environments, directed polymer models, last passage percolation, and random matrix theory.
