Research Interests

Probability, Random Networks, MCMC, and Probabilistic Combinatorial Optimization

Research Synopsis

I work in both probability and statistics. In my research I have worked on stochastic processes, random networks including dynamics on network models and random graphs. I am interested in problems that have originated from some applied branch of science, to which probability can say something fruitful and non-trivial. I try to find unifying mathematical principles which can be used to solve a variety of problems. Please contact me for more details regarding the nature of my exact research, courses I have taught and about my life in general.
