    I am a forth year mathematics Ph.D. student at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences working with Gérard Ben Arous.   I am spending the fall of 2010 visiting at MSRI. I received my A.B. in Mathematics at Harvard.  

    Research interests: Probability, Non-equilibrium Statistical Mechanics, Stochastic Partial Differential Equations, Interacting Particle Systems, Growth Processes, Polymers and Random Matrices. 

    Recent Publications
    1. Universal distribution of fluctuations at the edge of the rarefaction fan (with J. Quastel, Submitted)
    2. Probability distribution of the free energy of the continuum directed random polymer in 1+1 dimensions (with G. Amir and J. Quastel; To appear in Communications on Pure and Applied Mathematics)
    3. Limit processes of non-equilibrium TASEP  (with P.L. Ferrari and S. Péché; To appear in Journal of Statistical Physics)
    4. Universality of slow decorrelation in KPZ growth (with P.L. Ferrari and S. Péché; Submitted)
    5. Current fluctuations for TASEP: A proof of the Prähofer-Spohn conjecture (with G. Ben Arous; To appear in Annals of Probability)

    Complete list of papers. Recent slides from my talk at the MSRI/Evans Lecture Series. I will soon post lecture notes from my recent series of lectures at U.C. Berkeley on The Kardar-Parisi-Zhang equation.
