Hi, my name is Gourab Ray. I am currently working as a postdoctoral research Associate at University of Cambridge started September, 2014. I am part of the New frontiers in random geometry program. My mentor is Prof. Nathanael Berestycki. 

Previously I obtained my PhD from University of British Columbia under the supervision of Prof. Omer Angel. Before that I obtained my Masters and Bachelors degree in Statistics from Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata, India. 

I am broadly interested in the field of probability theory. In particular, I am mostly interested in random planar geometry and various branches around it. I have worked in and around various aspects of random planar maps, Liouville quantum gravity and unimodular random graphs. These days I am also interested in dimer models, its close connection with the Gaussian free field and imaginary geometry.
