Biography

I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Statistics at Texas A&M University (since September 2019).

My research interest is on the interface of applied probability and statistics, especially the modeling of heavy-tailed phenomena in complex networks.

I received my Ph.D. in Operations Research from the School of Operations Research and Information Engineering at Cornell University in August 2019, under the supervision of Prof. Sidney Resnick.
