I am currently a postdoc at NETWORKS. My host universities are the Eindhoven University of Technology and Leiden University. My mentors are Remco van der Hofstad and Frank den Hollander.

Before this, I was a post-doctoral assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor from September 2018 to May 2020. At Michigan, my mentor was Erhan Bayraktar. In May 2018 I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Statistics and Operations Research (STOR) at UNC Chapel Hill. My thesis advisors were Shankar Bhamidi and Andrew Nobel.

Broadly, my research interests span discrete probability theory, probabilistic combinatorics, and statistics. I am interested in problems that have originated from various branches of science, such as, network science, statistical physics, computer science, and mathematical finance. I try to develop mathematical techniques to understand and solve some of these problems. My recent works include exponential models on large networks, nonlinear large deviations, and processes on percolated graphs. Please check my publications and preprints for more details regarding my research.
