About me

I am a 5th-year graduate student in mathematics at Princeton University, supervised by Prof. Allan Sly. I am interested in discrete probability, with emphasis on

  • Phase transitions in interacting particle systems;

  • Markov chain mixing times;

  • Random constraint satisfaction problems.

In Korean, my name is 남동훈 (Dong Hoon Nam). Here is my CV.
