I obtained my PhD in math from Courant Institute, NYU, in May, 2022, under the supervision of Yuri Bakhtin and Jean-Christophe Mourrat.

I am interested in fields related to probability. When I was a PhD student at Courant, I co-organized the Student Probability Seminar.

You can reach me by emailing hongbin.chen (at) nyu.edu. My teaching experience, talks given, and other information can be found in my CV.

I will be a postdoc at IHES in September, 2022.
