# Mo Dick Wong

Welcome to my homepage. I am an assistant professor in the probability group at Durham University.

Previously I was a postdoc working on the LogCoRM programme with Prof. Jon Keating at the Mathematical Institute, the University of Oxford. I completed my PhD studies at the Cambridge Centre for Analysis (CCA) under the supervision of Prof. Nathanaël Berestycki.

## Research Interest

I am primarily interested in probability and its intersection with other branches of mathematics, currently focusing on multifractal measures/processes and various other objects in random matrices, random geometry and probablistic number theory. I am also interested in mathematical statistics and theoretical computer science.
