Ph.D. Candidate
Department of Statistics


I am a fourth-year Ph.D. student in the Department of Statistics, University of Chicago. I am broadly interested in the stochastic models that arise in biology, statistic physics, and computer sciences. My advisors are Prof. Steven P. Lalley and Prof. Antonio Auffinger (Northwestern University). Currently, my research focuses on first passage percolation and related models, and spatial epidemic models. I am also interested in random matrix theory and free probability. 

Before starting my Ph.D. in Statistics, I obtained my Ph.D. in Ecology and Evolution, supervised by Prof. Stefano Allesina. I also earned my Master's degrees in Statistics and Ecology and Evolution at University of Chicago.
