About Me


I am an Assistant Professor at Durham University in the Probability and Statistics group.

Before this I was a postdoc in the Probability group at ETH Zürich, and I completed my PhD in the Cambridge Centre for Analysis under the supervision of Nathanaël Berestycki.

I am currently co-organising the Durham Probability seminar.


My research is in probability theory and relations to statistical physics models.
