About me

I am a lecturer in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Sussex. Until January 2019, I was research associate at Prob-L@b in Bath. In 2016/2017, I was a member of the Buenos Aires Probability Group. Before that, I did my PhD thesis at Paris 6 (LPSM) under the supervision of Nicolas Broutin and Thomas Duquesne

Lecture notes

In December 2017 at Guanajuato, I gave a mini-course on Scaling limits of inhomogeneous trees and graphs. Here are the updated version of the slides.
