Research Interests
I am primarily interested in probability and combinatorics. My research is currently focused on percolation on Galton-Watson trees as well as the distribution of coefficients of polynomials based on the location of their roots. My advisor is Robin Pemantle.
I took my qualifying exam on November 10, 2015; I had a major topic of probabilistic combinatorics and a minor topic of algebraic number theory.
