Research

What is it that drives some people to do mathematics in the pursuit of knowledge so abstract it can be communicated to but a small group of people? The only answer I can give employs two words: mathematics is beautiful, and it is true.

My current research interests are (1) exchangeable structures and applications to network statistics and machine learning (2) Coulomb gases and related dependent point processes (3) heavy-tailed random matrices. Below is a list of all of my research papers sorted by topic. They are not necessarily in chronological order.
